Board for Higher- Intermediate

Hello everyone,

Here is another guy who needs help with choosing a new board. Until now I have been riding this one: (rossignol imperial series 155 - Rossignol Imperial 155 cm Snowboard | Overstock.com). I am riding for 7 years now and with this board is difficult to handle stuff I like so I decided to switch to sth. better. I am looking for some good rocker/camber hybrid and I of course have a few expectations (if it matters i have Burton Cartel size L bindings and Flow Rift 10,5 size - my feet are actually 9 - 9.5 but Flows are smaller):
1, float in powder. I want sth that will float in pow, cause i am riding freeride a lot.
2, fast and accurate turns. We are also riding a lot in forest terrain and I need sth. that allows me easilly and with accuracy maneuvre between a lot of trees (frequently in deep snow)
3, carving. I want sth that can hold its edge in powder or at groomer (if there is no opportunity to go freeride, I love speed carving on red, black or sometimes double black diamond slopes and I want sth that will not lose its edge every second turn)
4, swich riding. I want sth. that is comfortable to ride switch, cause I love to throw 180 and so on, on natural features in free terrain(and on groomers too)

And also there are some thing that I can survive without, but will be welcomed… and that are pop (can be usefull in free to ollie over sth. I cant circumvent) and easy air spin (we dont have a park in our region, but if its somewhere possible I like to dial some rotations on kickers)

Btw. I am 185cm an 67-70kg…

I am wondering about FLow Solitude 2013 (Snowboard Products | Snowboards, Snowboarding Boots, Bindings, Bags, Accessories & Equipment) or maybe flow maverick but it seems to me too much focused on pow...

I am sorry about my English
Thanks for advices

If Flow boards are easier to find, check out the Drifter. It sounds just like what you're looking for.

Good recommendation. Or the Flow Rush if the OP is looking for a true twin.
