Powder boards are just what they sound like. They are generally longer with a large nose to induce float, often some of the tail is removed to help sink the rear, some to the point that they resemble a Flying V guitar. The sidecut is designed with a directional, heavily setback stance in mind so that turning is still very similar to a normal board. Your legs don't get anywhere near as tired, you don't get stuck as easy, etc etc etc.
