Default confused over board advice

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

6 ft
210 lbs
Size 11 boot

mostly ride northeast hardpack and man made snow
75% freeride and 25% pipe and small kickers(no rails, got hurt enough in my younger years skating rails)

It is my second season riding and am addicted. I would rate myself as intermediate. I am advancing my skills pretty quick, I have 20 years of surfing and skating experience.

I currently ride a Rossignal Roc D 164 I got on ebay cheap last season. I am shopping for a new board.

I have read everything I can online and talked to many people on the mountain and in local shops. Some say I need a wide board, but some say wide boards ride like crap and are not responsive.

I want a board that turns on a dime , but will be stable at high speeds, and can do the occasional trip down the pipe.

I went on the Ride site and used the board finder option and the top two boards it gave me were the Control 162 and the Fleetwood 158.

I am open to other boards.

I was wondering what other people my size are riding.
