Sounds like you've found your board. If you loved it, I fear the Cobra may be a little soft for your liking. It's not a stiff board. Like I said via PM, pretty middle of the road in terms of flex. The Skunk Ape is definitely noticeably stiffer. The magnetraction (though I'm not a fan) may be beneficial for your conditions too.

If you like the Skunk Ape, the Never Summer you may want to be looking at is the Heritage X or maybe even the Raptor X.

In terms of camber profiles, the NS RC profile is similar to the C2 in the Skunk Ape.

My opinion, if you've demo'd one and loved it, I'd get that one instead of rolling the dice on a board I'd never been on. Been there, made that mistake.
