i couldnt find any info on your board but basiclywhat your looking for idealy is a board slighty longer than you ride in the resort, wood core and sandwitch construction

heres the specs on the sims chaos:
Hybrid Core
B43 Pre-Pregnated Fiberglass
Tri-Axial CTT
Progressive Sidecut
Slanted Sidewalls with Aluminum Plate
Sintered Base

my board is a 164, I'm looking for a wider 170 to split.

will the hybrid core make spliting diffacult?

read up on sims hybrid core. as they stated its a poplar core with two beech stringers down the center for torsional ridgidity and insert retention. sounds like you wouldnt have a problem then splitting that. ive seen people split boards that have been routed in the center to lighten them up and you have to fill the cavity with epoxy.
