Looking for a new board...suggestions?

Here is my situation.

I race GS for a college league. During the last GS race my board wouldn't hold its edge so I kept slipping out around the turns. I was told my current board wasn't good for racing because it was too flexible.

I don't want to do the whole hard boot/ race board set up because it is a little too intense for my league, but any suggestions of a good type/brand of board would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Oh and I'm 5ft, if that helps but I was told to go longer than normal for a racing board.

You're going to want a super-stiff board - likely with carbon v-beams to keep those edges down, a UHMW 7000+ sintered+structured base, 1 degree base bevel (help prevent edge catches at speed) & 3 degree side bevel (dig in deep). If you're unwilling to use a hard boot setup, you're going to want some stiff bindings and stiff boots.

Board: ???
Bindings: 09 Ride SPi???
Boots: Burton Driver X???

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
