Question Help me find the perfect board?

So I'm looking to pick up my second board, and I figured I should start my own thread instead of hijacking others.

My first board I literally picked because of the design, not a whole lot of thought went into it, I don't want to make that mistake again.

I'm looking for a board that I can take all over, piste, powder, parks, but I want it to be more park-oriented. So, something that can handle some deep pow occasionally, but will hold up better than most on small kickers/while jibbing. It needs to be a little on the soft side so that I can play and butter around a bit, and have some flex to it for the pop and presses.

I'm 5"8 and weight 140lbs, and use a US 7-8 boot size. My actual foot length is 25cm, so I've heard that I'll be needing a board that is narrower than most. I usually have my bindings set up +12/-12.

I'll also be looking for bindings to fill the same role, and if you guys have any boot recommendations I'd appreciate that too! Thanks, help a bro out?
