Are small entry level boards slower by design or because of their size? I've waxed her board and it really doesn't seem to help much. Her board is 128 cm. she is about 4ft 7 in.
My first board was a Morrow Lithium. Don't want to overgeneralize, but it was a slow board (and stiff). When I got my first really good board (a Heritage) the difference was dramatic.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
