You mentioned that you will be riding in a lot of icy conditions so I would also recommend you pick a board with an edge that will perform well there. Mervin boards (Lib-Tech, Gnu) and Smokin boards have magne-traction, which is pretty much a serrated edge that they claim gives better edge hold in ice. My personal experience with magne-traction has been awesome riding the shitty icy conditions up here in Minnesota, but I’ve read great things on this forum about Never Summer’s “vario power grip” as well.
