The forum destroyer may be a good choice.
I'm actually likely going for another cambered board. Haven't decided yet. But I am pretty strictly freeride and I love the "precision" (for lack of a better word) I feel I get on a cambered board riding this east coast crap lol

I must disagree with the highlighted. Height (or leg length) doesn't generally determine or correlate to leg strength
