Fast Base: Oxess, SG, Kessler, Donek, Prior---these are more for racing
Most every higher end freestyle board like LIB snowboards have a good base that is very capable of high speeds but this is only one part of the problem.

It's different board to board though. waxing and sliding on snow is a science and the type of wax that's on your board is super important piece of this. I'm guessing your base is plenty fast. You might just be a little dry or have the wrong temp range of wax on there. Also any man made snow will rip the wax right off your board in less than a day. You can go for days on nice soft fresh snow without a fresh wax but man mad snow is sharp and jagged and rips the wax right off your board like sand paper.
