Recommend me a board

Price: $500 or less
Camber: I'd like regular with some micro rocker tips
Base: whatever is fast
Flex: twin medium somewhere between park and all mountain. Torsionally something you can carve on but that doesn't take a leg press to initiate turns on.
Shape: true twin
Size: 150-152
Used for: park laps, pow days in a pinch and riding all over the mountain.

Currently I use my evo 150 for this and it's great but I destroyed my westmark 150 finally and I need a new backup/primary.

Looking at Yes The Greats. Would appreciate any other ideas. Peace, Cheese

Ride Machete would be a good choice

So neither of those are the camber he wants...

Flow Shifty is really the only one that comes to mind other than the Greats.

Don't shy away from a Rossi One Magtek. Rossignol is perhaps the most under rated brand out there. It checks off almost all of your criteria. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

i'd go w/ the machete too. it's not a camber nor a rocker. literally flat between the contact points with a slight rocker at the tip and tail for powder. it's a great aggressive all mountain.

this is what i ride.

i ride a lot of groomers, and it's handled great on ice at a fast speed, a little skidding, but nothing where you lose control. can't give you any input on how it handles on powder, but it's supposed to be at worst... descent.

I ride a 155 cm, at 160 lbs

Yea not exactly but it does what he wants perfectly. Ride DH2 is exactly the camber profile he wants but its a little stiff IMO
