And to be more specific: Camber extends just beyond the inserts, not well beyond.

That make a lot more sense than the camber being limited to between the bindings (where it could not be compressed by rider weight and would offer little benefit). The sizing on your 159 is a solid fit for your specs. I think you are going to adjust nicely to this board and will end up enjoying it a lot. Camber has its benefits (energy, edge hold and responsiveness to name a few) but there is an adjustment period. Stoked to hear what you think in a couple of weeks!

I had a Signal Omni that had almost the same profile. The board was a blast to ride. The camber really lets you ride it anywhere and feel comfortable doing it. The rocker is nice for when you're just slow cruising and messing around. It really makes the board feel more "lively" at slow speeds since you can engage the rocker to make butters and presses a breeze. Have fun riding it man, I'm sure you'll love it!

I just got mine, it seems that mine has more camber and goes pass the inserts more? It's a 156, maybe it's my table, but if I lay it on the floor you can see the minor rocker up front. It rises up a bit more when you load the camber.

@arsenalfan: could you post another pic of the camber profile (side view), from the front binding up to the nose?

That is what I had seen as well. Pretty much classic Rocker Camber Rocker (which is a very fun design).

Yeah, but it's supposed to have a freeride camrock which you can see here Nidecker Snowboards - Technology Camber. The diagram is totally different that what you get. So I'm just wondering if it's supposed to be like the diagram or since they moved the production to Elan, the camrock changes a bit as well.
