help an old guy w second board please

im 43 years old, 220lbs and 6'1"

i have just had the best week on the snow in my life in whistler on my morrow 164 'wide' board.

i got it just for powder but find it works well for me everywhere.

im beginner / intermediate, enjoy cruiseing 360s switch few bumps etc, nothing big or dangerous.

i want aother board just for fun ( bigger hits, lil more crazy) but dont now what to get, im thinking smthing a lil smaller and like used boards cheap (lots of boards with bindings on e bay)

not into looks, deeply into performance.

you think a burton rippey will be a good 'other' board or is it too old?

if not, what kinda board should i look for as an alternative ride?

thanks.......

Give me a little more detail about what you want to do with the other board. Just doing a bit "bigger hits" may not, alone, merrit a smaller board. If your going to be doing more spins, hitting some rails / boxes / etc, than if would definatlly be a good idea to go with something a bit smaller and more flexible.

at 43 i really dont want to break anything so im staying away from any metal, no rails or metal parts in my tricks, snow banks, snow lumps, snow hips, snow jumps etc as my skill/ confidence increases.small tricks with big skill over huge jumps with big balls

really i just want a board with a different feel so i have a choice, and maybe after a season or 2 with 2 boards to use, ill know more about what i want in my 3rd board in 08 / 09.

im guessing my 164 wide is a cruiser so im looking for something a lil more sporty / aggressive?

i think?
