It's a Womens Burton Feelgood 140cm with C60 bindings on it. That's a board designed for a 105 pound girl, with bindings designed for a 170 pound man. It obviously "worked" for her but you can't tell me that it was anywhere close to ideal.

It's like putting race tires on a pinto. Sure you CAN do it, but you've past the point of diminishing gains long ago.

It DOES make sense to try to match your gear.
Who are you to tell me, or her, that that setup wasn't ideal for her and her riding style? Who cares who/what the specific product was designed for, if you enjoy riding it, why is it "wrong"?

Like I said, there are no rules in snowboarding. Ride whatever gear you want.

You seem quite fixated on proving me wrong...with eBay links...
