Seriously consider Sherlock, sounds like it would pretty much fit your bill.

The Sherlock has intrigued me as well... but reading reviews on it, it seemed like it was a love/hate thing due to the super short effective edge and super tight sidecut. What was your experiences with the Sherlock.

Mee too... you ride basically standing on the tail of that board...turning is effortless...especially in powder since there's no way to sink that nose.

That is an awesome video. I always have said people overestimate their need for a twin twin to ride switch. However, that being said, while I do ride switch on my tapered powder, it is not ideal for it... and if you are really spending half your day time riding switch? I would try for something a little less directional. Still good point... OP, do you really spend that much time riding switch?

Got the Sherlock. It works great for me but I did get a board that was 5cm longer then the recommended size for my height and weight.

Lots of people say you do not need to lift your nose up on that board but I find that in power you still got to lift the nose.

So I did some more research, and I found that a splitboard would fit what I need, but they're expensive and I havent had any experience with them... I reallllllyyyyy want to avoid fish tail, so wether or not you can ride switch with them I don't really want to go there
