What to look for in a powder board?

Im looking for a powder board and want to know the features / characteristics to look for in one.

i'd like something that i can ride aggresivly without having to push pressure on my rear leg, so i assume that id want a larger board, but how large?

im 6'0 170 pounds size 11 boots, my current board is 158cm and it just sinks. i fucking hate powder on it.

Big nose, tapered shape, setback.

Are you looking for a pure powder stick or a new all around board that handles powder better?

And don't forget, banana causes your dick to grow 3 inches... in diameter.

Can't forget the camel toe tail so you got something to punch with your banana growth cock.

i break pow boards into two categories, soft / surfy (fish, sickstick, snowmullet->smokin pinner), and pow focused stiffer freeride. (slackcountry, charlieslasher, summit) In Montana in light snow i enjoy my softer snowmullet, when it come to riding in washington you need a little more crud busting abilities, so i prefer a stiffer board. As for size, go big you can never have too much float, plus learning to ride a big board will expand your abilities over the whole mountain. 180 libtech birdman = huge cock

Isn't the ride machete supposed to be a good all mountain board that handles well in powder?
