Hi BurtonCustom,

The trick is to match up the right board with the right rider. In terms of flex, rider weight is the critical element. There are great designs in both camber and rocker (there are many variations and combinations of rocker, camber and flat technologies around today) that will make for a great all aorund board that loves the park. Please let us know your weight and foot size as well as what board you are currently riding (and how it is working out for you).

Had you considered the Custom X?

At 225 you will need the to go to a longer size in either the Custom or the Custom X to get into stiffer cores. The 156 maxes out at 175 lbs. 50 lbs over the max makes it a complete noodle for you. Demo to see how long you need to go. If you have been liking the custom 156 at all, you may be able to get away without jumping straight to the biggest size. The X is stiffer betweeen the bindings (and overall) and would be a better suggestion for you.
