I am going to second what Weipim said. I am a big fan of the rocker (or banana) between your feet, and normal camber under foot. To me it feels like all the advantages of other camber profiles with none of the downsides, but thats just my opinion...
See NeverSummer, all their boards are built this way, they call it RC meaning rocker and camber, or See from Lib-Tech/Gnu what they call C2 camber.
The mountain i teach at has this camber profile as rentals, in the form of the Rossignol Trick Stick, and i have had great success teaching beginners on it. However, I also ride this camber profile personally in the form of a Neversummer Proto CTX, and find it to be a great design for all-mountain riding, any conditions, carving groom, to hitting jumps/rails, riding the deep, really all around great camber profile that i would recommend to anyone...
So my top picks for you in order (all with this camber):
Never Summer Proto or similar model like the SL
Gnu Billy Goat
Lib-Tech Jamie Lynn Pheonix
Gnu riders choice
