Okay, okay. I feel like I already know what sort of replies I'm going to get, but nonetheless I want opinions and discussion. Hi, yes, I'm female, about 125lb and 5'3"ish. I'm in the market for a new board and I just seriously don't like any women's boards. I know it's possible (and it happens often) that women ride men's boards and that it's not entirely uncommon. I've been boarding for 5-7 years, now, and I consider myself on the high end of intermediate. I currently have a 147 SIMS Heiress, which is the board I've been riding with since the beginning.
I'm strongly considering getting the Ride Machete GT at 151cm. I'm reluctant to leave the standard camber scene, but I've heard strong positive opinions for hybrids (my dad has a Ride DH.)
I know the standard board height chart comes from weight nowadays (I chose my Heiress based on my height) and men's boards are technically heavier.
I suppose what I'm asking for is just opinions or suggestions or food for thought. I'm heading to a shop soon to just check the size to make sure I absolutely want it.
