Yea she just booked a plane flight to Florida to see her god daughter for christmas so now she isnt going to get a board till the end of january. I am definitely gonna help out and see if she can snipe something online from somewhere for super cheap.
What have you girls noticed between the female and mens board? less weight and or more flexible?
If your friend has super small feet, waist width might be an issue when considering a men's board. But yeah, generally the flex pattern is designed a bit differently from what I understand. And widths are narrower in most women's boards.
I can't really give you my personal perspective on going from a men's board to a women's because my men's board is ancient compared to my newer model women's board.
