opinions needed! Long Snowboard for Pow

I have only been 16 or so times but I am hooked. I was bummed a few times though. One to three foot of fresh powder and I could not keep from submarining. This also happedned in the deep slush during the Spring. I currently weigh 190 and have a 164 Atomic exeter. Anybody out their ride the big boards 170- 180? Are they fun or impossible to turn? Would they make the days where I am struggling that much better? I really want a K2 El Dorado but will probably need a Divorce lawyer if I buy one now.

for nxt year lib tech will be making almost all of their boards with banana camber. this means that they have a reverse camber and are much better in pow than comventional camber boards. if you got a board with banana camber you would only need around 160cm so it would be very manageable on normal conditions.
