Default looking for a more advanced board

I'm looking for a new board. Something for free riding (some powder), good for a save landing if I want to do a jump or two, no chatter, easy to learn to go both ways, good through choppy stuff, reaction....something that makes the groomed hell feel a little more like un-groomed heaven so to speak. Is there anything out there like that? Head is spinning from too much research!! I'm a woman, but don't mind a guys board. Currently riding a Academy Serenity board, and I'm not just bored with the "not in your face" graphics. Please help!!

Check out the Arbor Swoon, female version of the Coda. If you wanna wait for 2013 Signal is doing a Women's Omni, Vita Wavelength, and I have gotten rave reviews about that one. I love the Omni so it makes sense. Check out the Flow line as well, their boards are really well designed.

my wife loves her GNU B-street for freeriding an hitting the park a bit, but her go-to board is her Neversummer infinity for go anywhere type of stuff.

Roxy is pretty legit. They run magne traction and c2 btx. The magne traction should help you out on the groomers if your problem is ice. C2 BTX is pretty legit it is rocker in middle and positive cambered over the bindings. The Envi doesnt look bad it is directional though so keep that in mind if you like riding switch.

Thanks Kramer, I didn't even put that into account (directional). I would like to learn how to ride switch...but then again, haven't really done it so far.

Don't like the pink graphics on the Rossignol Diva Magtek...Yes, design plays a little part in my decision

I got the envi this season and it's a great board. Its a smooth riding board, no chatter at speed. It's good on powder and choppy snow. I've been fooling around with switch a little this year. It's very similar to the NS Lotus which I've ridden a lot. Just liked the graphics and thought it would be good to have a board with magna traction. (My old board is a NS infinity.)
