Default What kind of flex should I be expecting?

I basically want to ride like these guys.
YouTube - Hot Day in Feb
Something thats stopping me from progressing is my boots cause I bought them with my first setup blindly off line on ebay. Upgraded the board and bindings, now I need boots. The two people in the video are buttering, doing jumps, spinning, pressing. Basically bombing down the mountain and going through the park as well, what kind of flex should I look into? Medium flex or more Stiffer for better response?

Thats like my riding!!!

on insane steroids.

Soft boots. Because if they had stiffer boots, they will be catching edges everywhere even if they were to be dull

Sorry, have 2 questions on same video. Promotion? I'm not promoting it. I'm just asking what kind of boots would suit that kind of riding similar to mine and some tips on how I can maybe get better at this style of riding. If your not going to help me please don't post, thanks.

Soft boots that fit well, don't worry about brand, try them all on till you find the ones that fit correctly.

Burton Ions I wasn't feeling it, they were comfy but didn't cut it for me. I fell in love with the Burton Rulers, got myself a pair in white. First time speed lacing but should be okay, sounds like I made a good choice. It has a support of 6
