Your call. She's going to be on her ass regardless, and won't even be able to tell the difference in tech on boards. It'll be frustrating for her on either one :/
If you put a gun to my head and told me to choose one, I'd go with the actual womens' board...because, you know, it's going to be specifically designed for a female.
Good call. Thanks for the input
The reg camber board will be easier for her to engage her edge to learn her basic turns. A softer park board and be to noodlely for a beginner
The flex on the pickle is about 6-7... its rather stiff. Does your opinion regarding it being too noodlely still stand given that info?
EDIT: read your edit. makes sense. rental it is, i guess!
