I agree the problem is moisture content related. I have dealt with the same problems in the past and yes laying the board down flat on a solid surface will often result in cupping if it’s not reached equilibrium with the air in the shop. One way I’ve used to straighten out this problem is to set the board over a heat vent with the cupped (concave) side facing up. As the moisture level equals out on both sides the board will return to flat. It doesn’t take long to correct this issue.
P.S. I took a quick trip to you tube and found this video that addresses your problem, check it out.
