Default help with new board...

i am 5'10" about 205... i have a 2006 burton shaun white board 156

i feel like i may be too heavy for my board. when i ride flat it seems wobbly, and im alot slower than say my brother. who rides the same size board but is taller and lighter.

im thinking of the burton custom. probably in camber. due to the fact that i am in new york(hunter mountain) and mostly hav to deal with icy conditions.

would i benefit alot from gettning this board. probably in 160 or 162. i would say i am an intermediate is it eve an upgrade?

my brother rides a custom flying v and i am going to try it out to get an idea about the whole flying v thing but will probably still get the camber. but who knows

what kinda riding are you going to do, carve? park? what size feet you got? it is my opinion that you cant go wrong with camber.
