Default Board rental woes.

Hi guys.

I know you prob get inundated with " what board should i buy " threads , but I need some advice.

After going boarding for my first time in Japan for 8 days , It was a sure thing I'd become hooked. What a holiday.

A year later and we are heading to France for 2 weeks. Yay.
The only problem is , we have to rent gear, as we just can't go as often as we'd like , being stuck in West Australia.

I've done some research but wanted to narrow down what kind of board specs wise , to rent to get the best from my hol.

I am linking turns and riding on intermediate runs and managed some powder.
I will prob weigh around 172lbs on the slope
178cm tall
Boot size 11 us (so mid wide??)
I'm thinking an all mountain board that will be great for carving and powder in that order , but no park. Should still be able to ride fakie
I"ll be 39 years old dammit

So for mostly carving and some powder , What length and bottom contour should I be ideally looking for at the shop.
