That's already covered in Wiredsport's guide as Rocker-Camber-Rocker (the diagram caption makes this explicit).

Yes and no. The more common RCR version is more extreme. Race/carve version is more subtle and typically combined with other mentioned attributes.

Remember these old Look Lamar boards from the early 90's?



Ahead of their time in terms of using rocker and lifting the contact points.

The Morrow spoon was an early cambered model that lifted the contact points with base contouring at the tip and tail. First Rocker-Camber-Rocker at the edge line?

MPD,

Please take a shot of your Merc shooting straight at the sidewall with the lens at the same height as the board with the board on a smooth hard surface (not carpet please). That really shows of the profile and lift points...and the Merc/Venus have a pretty cool profile story

I think it would be cool if we could get a bunch of photos in this thread that show popular boards shot in that same way. A lot of times the actual profile that shows up after production is pretty surprising.

How about the Bataleon TBT? Yes it can fit into the "cambered" description, but the upturned edges make quite the difference no?

I recently wrote this in another thread:

Consider this: TBT basically combines two profile technologies. The boards are cambered if you follow the line of the center base, but if you were to follow the edge line, they are Rocker-Camber-Rocker due to the TBT lifted edges at the tips and tails. TBT does not lift the edges in the mid section, so you go from the cambered portion where the edge and the base are at the same level to the tips where the center remains cambered while the edges rocker upwards.

Word on the street for 2011/12, bataleons tbt raised all edges throughout their boards. Including mid section. I think Lobster will have the same...?

Hi Baron,

The mid sections of all of the 2012 boards are still all single base with the triple base not starting until further out on the boards. That is one of the core features of the design. The various versions of TBT all vary where and how significantly the TBT begins after the flat (edge to edge) mid section as well as the relative width of the flat section in relation to the raised edges on the TBT portions. I think what you may be referring to is that the TBT extends all the way out to the tips now.

I was pretty unclear by the description I got on the new ones, I definitely could be wrong. I havnt actually seen the new line. Only pics, but they werent detailed with the tbt. Gotta say though, new graphics look sick.
