Bayoh There's many more factors than just the flexiness/stiffness of a board that lends to those attributes. Generally though, you want a soft board if you're a parkrat, a med-stiff board for all-mountain, and a stiffer board for high speed bombing.

I haven't looked much into a powder specific board so I don't know what kind of flex pattern is optimal for that yummy white cotton candy snow.

Soft vs hard boards - What specs to looks for specific style riding

Dont think that there is such a specific thread and I would like some input as well as I'm not too clear on the pros and cons on stiffness level

Speed - long and stiff
Control - stiff
Butter - soft
Park and pipe - ??
Jumps / Ollie's - ??
Powder - ??
