Default Burton Feather vs Social

This is for a beginner. I was leaning towards the feather but saw a really good deal on a Social. For whatever reason it's tough to find anything more than the standard 30% off msrp on the feathers at the moment, but there are tons of them available.

Is the social more a park board? East Coast so mostly groomers. She'll only be going about a half dozen times a year so even if she wanted she wouldn't be in the parks anytime soon. If the feather is really going to noticeably help her progress I'd go for that.

The social probably saves me about $40, so it's not a big deal, though all things being equal I think the social a nicer looking board.
