Yet another "What board should I buy?" thread!

Current setup is:

K2 Brigade Wide 159cm
Burton Freestyle Bindings

East Coast riding, hardpack, groomed stuff and Ice. (Poconos)

I'm 23, 5'11" ish. and I guess about 175-185lbs. Size 13 boot (Burton Moto).

I'm thinking about a new board because mine is pretty beat. Maybe beyond me trying to fix it again. I guess you can say I'm an intermediate rider. I'm comfortable on any trail and I like spending time in the park.

I like the forgiving rocker and the pop from my board. But I feel like I want a little more edge hold when trying to carve/turn. I do also want a little more playfulness in the park for butters and jibs but still with pop and edge hold. I'd also like a twin for switch riding. Is that asking too much out of one board?

I've looked into the 2013 K2 WWW 155 Wide because I found it somewhat cheap through google. But I don't really know what to compare it to.

Thanks for any input!

I don't know how the WWW is going to give you more edge hold.

Look for a soft cambered board. Or magne. Smokin?

Maybe someone can comment on softer cambered boards on ice etc. Arbor makes a few. Maybe Capita

I guess what I mean is I don't want less edge hold than I already have with my current rocker board. I just don't want a complete noodle.
