Hey I didn't know you've been on Doneks and Priors before... What were your thoughts on them? The GF is looking to get a more freeride oriented board now that our riding is 50%+ of the time in the off-piste. She's looking at the Donek Incline (they'll make one in the exact size she needs), and the Prior Brandywine, among other things (Nidecker Princess, Arbor Push).
I'm just stoked she is getting to the point that she wants a stiffer, longer freeride board!
