lots of powder boards are not stiff.... I do not work in the industry but I understand basic physics. The idea behind a powder board is to keep the nose up and out of the powder which in turn planes the rest of the board/rider up. By making a board softer you allow the pressure the snow creates to bend the board in an upwards direction increasing the nose lift and enabling a greater degree of float. Does that make sense?
