I would really appreciate if some of you could help me out.
I'm looking for a really solid off-piste/all mountain board. Till now I have been a self confessed park rat but all thats to change. Come February i'll be going to Whistler with some friends for the rest of the season (just finished uni celebration). My NS revolver is lots of fun in the park but I am looking for something to slay the powder for years to come cost is not really an issue. I definitely require a wide board since I have a size 13 foot but the problem is that I am lanky (tall and skinny) so I might lack the weight to turn some boards in powder and have the most fun out of them. Maybe get a directional profile board?
Summary for those who didnt get throught wall of text:

if you can handle a directional board the lib la nina is a hoot to ride.. the hybrid camber/rocker allows you to run a very short length and still be able to float it in the powder.. look into it, sick board. it's basically a skate banana with a super stiff tail. makes switch riding interesting, but i'd say it's a great resort terrain ripper.
I was able to borrow my friends T.Rice Pro HP earlier this month but I found it too stiff and unresponsive maybe i'm not heavy/strong enough to have some fun with it through the trees. Either way I feel its a board for T.Rice ie designed to take off one slope and land on the next and it just dosn't suit my playfulness in powder.
I have been trying to find out some personal opinions on the lib tech la nina, if anyone owns/has ridden it I would love some comments.
