Looking for new set-up recommendations

Hey all! I'm about ready to upgrade my current set-up and am looking for advice. I'm 6'0, 215lbs, size 11 boot. I'm an intermediate rider and stick to the groomed runs, no park. Rarely, do we get powder that I can take advantage of. I board almost exclusively at resorts in the midwest. For the most part, I board along side my 6 year old son who is an advancing skiier, so I like the idea of the Flow bindings. A couple times of year I get out with all adults and am able to board a little faster runs. I'm looking for a set up that will allow me to grow into as my son becomes more advanced and rides well on the hard packed groomed runs.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Get a board in the 162-165cm range, that will fit your weight and keep you from needing a wide board.

Generally, the more camber a board has the better it does on hard pack.

Boarts I suggest- Salomon Time Machine, Rome Reverb Camber, Burton Process Camber, Flow Drifter.
