What New wide snowboard to get?

Hello,
I am 6 feet tall and about 145 pounds. I have big feet so I will need a new board that is a wide board.
I love to ride powder but I also jib around and butter and that kinda stuff. I do not ride park that much at all so the board wont need to be park-driven. I ride powder most of the time but I am not looking for a stiff board or a board that has very little flex to it.
Any suggestions?
Thank you!

How big are your feet? Really don't need a wide if you have below a 12. Mid wides are good unless you are 13 or above.
