Default Snowboards with the most skateboard like feel?

I know there are a ton of threads about park boards so excuse me for posting this, but I'm wondering which out of those park boards have the most skateboard like feel to it? Right now I'm riding a mid flex all mtn board and want to start scoping out a park board I might pick up this season if not then in time for the next one for sure.

I seen the Rome Shiv ( http://www.romesnowboards.com/boards/shiv/ ) and was really liking the skatecore profiling tech on it when reading about it, not to mention the graphics look sick. The Boneless( http://www.romesnowboards.com/boards/boneless/ ) by them looks just as good with it being slightly more flexible.

When it comes to other brands I'm not exactly sure which have the most skateboard like profile to it and I really don't want to scope out all the boards on all the companies sites because that would take some time. Love my current Rome board but wouldn't mind riding a different brand if they made a board that I'm looking for. So what boards do you guys know of that have the most skateboard like feel to it with some good flex yet still has some pop to it?

Do snowboards ever feel like a skateboard...??? Is that even possible...???

I don't think it is, i think you may want to look at the NOW snowboard bindings as they will effectively give any board a skateboard type feel, in that they work the same way as the trucks do on a skateboard, but i don't think a board could ever feel like you want...

On the flip side, look at some different brands, not your mainstream that everyone else has. I bought an Endeavour Vice for this season and have ridden it a couple of times now, and have to say it is very playful, and a much better ride than some of my other boards especially in the park...

I am considering getting some NOW for just this board so it becomes even more playful, but as i cannot buy them in Norway, refuse to pay international shipping, i will wait on those until i am in the UK or have a friend in the USA that can bring over for me...

Well yeah, no snowboard will ever truly feel like a skateboard, but you get what I'm trying to say. This might maybe be a question more for people who do skate and have tried out enough park boards to give an opinion on.

The Boneless will feel like a skateboard right up to the point you snap it like one. The board is a fucking turd.

this probably belongs in board dicussion

the bataleon disaster or lobster park are close to what you are looking for, or a rossignol rocn rolla. basically any lifted edges are gonna be real loose skatey feel.

Go with a Bataleon or Lobster. They've been doing the 3D base shapes for awhile now.
