Another new board thread

Hey, looking for some suggestions for boards

Im 5'4 145lbs

I do everything, Park to pow, basically I ride everywhere but the middle of the trail. I like a loose/surf feel and im always doing little 180s and little jumps off of the sides of trails. Hitting smaller rails. I seem to catch a rail more then i should with my Gnu carbon high beam. What I want in a board is Nimble, go anywhere board, durable and high quality. I dont bomb hills anymore, i more just stick to the side and play in natural terrain. I get to go out west about 2 times a year and showshoe/wintergreen more. I havent bought a board in 14 years (the gnu has been pretty durable) can you start pointing me into the right direction. and are the camber/rocker/camber boards loose enough to enjoy?

its so hard pouring through some of these websites and i leave feeling more confused with all the "sick dope v rock nasty edge with butter tits technology shove a banana in it" when they describe a boards features.

Its getting wordy
Im looking for (first to last priority)

-Nimble (fast forgiving turns for tight, natural trails,light on its feet)
-Skate feel in the park
-Forgiving coming off of rails or a not quite 360,
-Pow capable (always hunting for it)
-light weight board
-Durable, High Quality

dont care so much about hold the line hill bombing speed or jumping huge

Sorry I don't have a suggestion for you, actually considering a similar board to play on for not so powder days.

But, wow! Finally a well written thought out "here's a list of priorities" what board should I get? People should take a lesson from this....

Burton custom or process, Flying V version of each.

Do some demos if you can.

Arbor coda, capita defenders of awesome, gnu riders choice, never summer evo or SL, K2 fastplant or happy hour, salomon time machine. Lots of options depending on your budget. Don't over think it.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
