Strong carves and catch free spins pull you towards opposite ends of the design spectrum. Carving favors a lot of planted edge on the snow while catch free spinning prefers at least the contact points lifted and possibly more. Boxes prefer boards that you have very little edge down.

Because you want to carve, spin and hit park features on one deck (and many riders do that) you want to shoot right up the middle in terms of design. There are boards in the shorter camber section Rocker Camber Rocker category that will be awesome. Same is true of Camber Rocker Rocker. TBT is a contender as well.
