Default 2nd question ....

Can I hijack a 2nd question in in the interests of recycling threads

Question about my girlfriends boards - its 149cm which according to calculators is about the right length roughly maybe a cm or 2 too small for her height and weight. But her board seems to be made for the park and has pretty high flex I think. This is it - Palmer 2003 Shaun Palmer Shred Snowboard 149cm, 154cm Snowboard

A lot of the comments / reviews I read about it have it more like a freestyle than a freeride board.

What I'm wondering is - as a beginner / getting into intermediate would a board this "soft" cause an issue with her turns. She's pretty light (130lbs) so know a flex helps but what you guys think or would this be fine for now and only affect her if she gets into highspeed carving etc?

Thanks
G
