What is a reverse camber snowboard?

A “rocker” or reverse-camber board or ski is the opposite of traditional camber. Rather than curving up, the board or ski curves down, so the middle is the low point of the curve. The center of the board is the only contact point, which makes it easier to pivot and makes you less likely to catch an edge.

What is a full camber snowboard?
