Nope, only positive camber. TBT should give you most of the benefits of rocker though, with maybe the exception of float in pow. Since the Cameltoe is a pow board, it might have a rockered nose.

I'm not sure how good it is in powder, we don't get any here Hopefully I'll find out next month.

Yeah I've heard mixed things about pow performance. I would imagine it's better than just a plain old-school camber board, but I've seen a few reviews that specifically criticized the performance in powder

any of these boards recommended for a beginner? wifey is hating her camber board, catching edges. I need to get her confidence back up (traumatized watching her coworker shred his whole body up and now is timid on the slopes). Kind of scared re:bataleon as snowolf mentioned his board may have been a bit squirrely. Want something stable but than catch free.

Thanks for the link!

2 things I noticed

1. They've reversed their flex scale again. 0 is now soft, 10 is stiff.

2. They've changed the flex pattern on the Evil Twin. Going by the new scale, the 2013 model is 5-6-5 (softer nose and tail) and the 2012 model would be considered 5-4-5 (stiffer nose and tail)

I've been riding freeride TBT in very deep powder (2-5 ft) for years here on the west coast and it floats excellent! (and how many of those reviewers do you think rode freeride TBT and in significant depths?)
