I'm looking for a new board and am open to suggestions. I ride in MN so a lot of park riding with some blue runs to mess around on a butter on thrown in there. I like boxes and rails and a few 10-20 foot kickers. I also like buttering on normal runs. My current board is a 2011 K2 Parkstar which I really like. It's past warranty and is starting to delaminate so I'll need a new board soon. I'd like something similar to the feel of it but would like to try out a different company. I'm looking for either a full rocker, flat with rocker tips, or flat board. Some sort of hybrid camber might work as well. I want it to have a lot of flex without being a complete noodle (i.e. not quite as soft as the Artifact Rocker or WWW but still pretty soft). I'm open to any company. I'm doing a bunch of research myself, but I'd just like to hear what any of you think are good boards that fit my needs.

My fave board this year has been my Capita DOA, not the right profile you described, but Capita does make a bunch with the profile you mentioned and geared towards your style of riding.

I just picked up a Rome Shank to toss around at So Cal resorts.

I've got similar specs/riding styles and I'm real happy with my Status. Sounds like their iD could fit what you are looking for and it's on sale. 2012 ID Series : STATUS Snowboard Company
these look really interesting. i thought i knew pretty much all snowboard brands but i've never heard of these guys before. do you have anymore info on them and how's their quality?
