Help! Another boarder seeking advice!!

I am looking for an all mountain board- something for the powder, "out of bounds" areas, and a board with quite a bit of flex.

Can you help me find what I need?

I am 5.7. and 155lbs
I have been boarding for 6yrs now and and would classify myself as advanced intermediate. I have been using the same board for almost 4 years and would like to upgrade...

I was thinking Arbor (A- Frame or Formula)

what do you think?

Thanks

An A Frame would do you good...you'd probably ride a 155ish...

if your in an extremely dense wooded area when you go out of bounds i'd go for a 155 like arsenic said, but if you plan to do more powder then out of bounds, or its not very dense, then go for bigger, 157 would suffice, and A-frame would be just fine

Yes, I would also like to know the durability of Arbor Boards. I saw a couple complaints of them being weak.
