I pretty much know what I like to ride, but I'd just like input from other riders for piece of mind.
I'm 6'2", I weigh 240lbs and live in southeast Alaska riding our thick and often heavy snow, so I ride boards in the 180ish size range. As most may know there aren't a lot of large boards to choose from. I've owned a venture divide, which I liked, but still would like people's opinions on the storm. I'm also looking at a Donek Hazelwood and Prior spearhead.
I do prefer and pretty much require a stiffer board that will stand up to a beating. Thank you in advance for responding!

Why not try something a little bit smaller for change. If the snow is heavy, it would seem like you don't need another big floaty board.

Yeah, I've thought of that but don't particularly care for smaller boards, plus I've broken boards. It isn't super heavy, just thick, coastal snow, and I tend to feel like I need the floatation.
