My deserving soon-to-be-boarder would be my wife. She grew up at a local ski area (Stevens Pass) where her dad was in the Forest Service. She's an avid skiier who has dabbled in boarding a couple of times. When I was looking at gear at Evo, she tried on some boots and said "yeah, these feel a LOT different than my last set". We dug out her old gear (bought circa 2001, men's gear, size 157 board for a 5'7", 120 lbs female!) and I quickly realized why she had no fun on the board. Too many spills/caught edges. We have 2 1/2 year old twin boys and she doesn't get a lot of time to explore new things (let alone invest in something). Hoping a new board could spark her interest in exploring "the dark side"!
