It has a true camber base but also super flex points in the nose and tail so it feels like a rocker-board and u can get alot of nice butters out of it.

Here is the excerpt from the www.thegoodride.com. 
Intermediate to Expert All Mountain Freestlye with a rocker style shape.
A good ballance of freestlye and all mountain riding and solid choice for the person who goes every where regular or switch.  This is a more mellow version of the Salomon Official and is a little more  all around park friendly.  This is a great choice for someone who wants an aggressive park board with good edge hold. It has a bit of rocker at the tip and tail but it's not totally banana'd out.  This board has flat camber and then kicks up the nose and tail a little earlier than most boards.  It's going to perform very well in powder for its shape and be pretty forgiving when it comes to landing sketchy tricks.

sounds like k2 jib rocker and burton party rocker, and probably a few others.  mostly flat, but the tips lift up a little earlier than the contact points.

I picked up the 154 Grip late in the season, and love the way it rides. 

Really mildly cambered, not quite flat in the middle, with big tip and tail kicks starting, as spenser mentioned, before the contact points, so it rides pretty small for its size.  Lots of pop, lots of float in pow.
 
Not totally sold on the equalizer sidecut though, edgehold was kinda crappy in icy conditions.  Also, the equalizer felt really catchy flat-basing - but after a slight detune all-round, it felt a lot better, and I didn't really notice too much of a difference from a regularly radiused board.
