Default Help me find a good board

So I've been slowly upgrading everything in my setup from cheap to mid-range, and so far I've gotten a Liquid Boardwear jacket and pants, Smith Prodigy goggles, Burton Freestyle bindings (I was only able to get a cheap pair because the used board I was getting didn't have bindings :P) and most likely Burton Goretex mittens that I am getting within the next week. I also have a pair of Flow Decade boots that I got about three years ago, and are so comfortable. All of this has been in the last two years.

Next, I'm looking to upgrade my board within the next year or so, because I was told that once I stop growing taller, I could buy a new board.

My current one is a K2 Fuse, not sure what year, but it's a camber made for powder/freeriding, because it's binding holes are set back.

I like to do a bit of everything, however I have recently been getting into park. I don't want a super buttery board, I would like it to be in between.

I would like to stick to camber, but hybrid would be good as well.

Also, I'd like to have the price around less than 400. I'm around 5' 6", and I don't know if shoe size matters, but I do have some toe drag; I'm a size 11 shoe but my boots are 9's and still going...figure that out...:P I'm an intermediate rider and have gone off-piste in the trees and shtuff.

Thanks!

-Matt
