For top-shelf North American rides, Prior is right in your backyard and makes various race-specific boards that would suit you well. Donek in Colorado makes race boards, too. If you're looking to stay in softboots, Donek makes a softboot race board called the Saber. Both also make full-on hardboot / metal construction race decks, if you want to make that leap. Coiler is also out of Canada and makes strictly hardboot decks. All of them will build custom boards to your specs and will advise on models and construction. In fact, Coiler ONLY builds custom boards to your specs. I have a 182cm Coiler NSR2 that is insanely fast and that I love (though I'm a non-racer), so I'm partial to them, but all are highly respected. Donek and Prior could probably get a board in your hands in a few weeks, whereas Coiler's lead time is alot longer (small shop / big backlog apparently)...order now to have your board sometime next season. Google them. They're all online. Elite stuff comes at an "elite" price though, so be forewarned. There are also European options, Kessler, etc. making Olympic level boards, but the prices generally go higher yet. Of course a cheaper option would be to find a suitable board in the regular production lineup from one of the bigger companies. I just don't follow the mainstream stuff enough to offer advise on those models, though, so maybe others can chime in.
