I should have mentioned the boot size which is a 6. I've been looking at the feather and also the feel good from Burton. I've also been reading copious numbs of reviews at thegoodride.com. The battalion distortia seems like a possibility. Seems like the more I read the more confused I be.
My wife's second board, which she got at end of season last year is the feelgood camber. She rode it for a few runs on two different days and put it in the closet till probably mid season of this year, it's quite a bit trickier to ride than the feather, so she is going to get more time on the feather first. Last year was her first year and she did about 25 days, she's going moderate to medium speed down blues depending on the slope, can generally link turns.
Look for a demo day if you can as well, it's a great way to compare.
