Out of curiosity i took a few pics of the three splits here to compare the profiles, I figured since there are so many different types these days I'd post them and perhaps other people can add pics as well - it's interesting to see the different options out there

Igneous 159, minimal camber with a bit of a rockered nose and flat tail:

I'm thinkin in light of the thread below on how to descibe rocker that these boards are just shorter boards with long gradual tips and tails. Rockered boards are like the banana hammock, skate banana, rad airs, and of course:

-warning soapbox-
full rockered rides are a lot more sensitive and loose at lower speeds, skis benefit from underfoot rocker because a ski is pretty squirrely with only one foot on it. Full rockered boards flatten out between your two feet on them to give decent control on flat packed exit trails. Skiing a split like this is just silly, boarding on a bit of hardpack, no problem.
