Default Looking for a board that's great for large kickers and also works well in powder

I'm 5'6 170 lbs and I currently ride a 150cm GNU Park Pickle with Union Contact Pro bindings.

I love the Pickle as it's amazingly playful. I always have a blast jibbing and buttering on most features in the park and the board's also great for showboating on the groomed runs / side hits.

However, I find that due to the size and profile of the Pickle, it isn't a good board for large kickers or powder. Are there any boards that are stable at high speeds, stable when landing large kickers or drops, and also perform decently in powder?

I'm probably asking for too much, but I hope something like that exists!

Flow Rush. It's one of the better jump boards I've been on and my buddy chooses that as his pow board unless he's riding AK.
