Ok awesome thanks. So based on the advice here and a bit of research I decided to go for the K2 Luna, it seems like the best fit. I found a place that had a new leftover 2008 Luna for 250$ which is still a little more than I wanted to spend but I think it will be worth it if she doesn't have to buy another in a year or two. Plus it's a lot of board for the money, full sticker price on it was 379.99$. Good thing they have a layaway plan. And price protection so if it were to go on sale boxing day I could get it cheaper even.
