Default Suggestions... Flex vs Shape vs Size

I have a question for anybody that has experience riding a variety of shapes and sizes...

I currently ride a 158W (size 12 boot, 200 lbs) hybrid (rock,cam,rock) Forum Double Dog Destroyer (mid flex 5). I am pretty happy with it overall but I am thinking about changing it up to a full rocker to give myself a little more flexibility with ground tricks (butters, ollie, nollie, ect.)

My question is...

1. Will the change from hybrid to straight rocker give me the feel diff Im looking for even with the same flex?

2. Will I also need a mid soft instead of mid flex to get that feel?

3. Should I also consider going down to a 156W?

My area of improvement needed is on ground tricks and in the park (intermediate), I dont get on the hill enough to expect to be great in the park but def spend time on features and jumps when I get out. I like speed too but its not real high on my priority list.

Any advice/suggestions and/or board recommendations are appreciated!!!!
