Ok thanks that's what I was hoping for, some first hand experience with this board. I'd rather not have to buy her another board in a season or two but I also don't know how good she will ever get either. There was a K2 Luna for around the same price, but from what I have read that is a more advanced board and I was concerned it might be too difficult to learn on. She is not a total beginner but I haven't gone out with her yet so I have no accurate assessment of her skills, beyond she has told me she can do heelside turns but falls over going toeside. Maybe the Luna might be a better option?
