Women's beginner/intermediate boards? Lux or others?

Hi,

I'm helping my wife select a first snowboard. Any insights would be appreciated. here are the details:

-don't need much help w/sizing
-likely ride 10-15 days per year out west (co, utah, ca)...so not too much ice/crud hopefully
-probably no park
-beginner (2 days ridden so far), but expect fast progression b/c she's an advanced surfer....so nothing that is strictly oriented towards beginners
-possibly twin or directional-twin because she surfs with either foot forward 70%-30%, so may be likely to ride fakie even outside the park...but I guess this isn't the main consideration
-ruled out: ride compact, salomon lotus, and burton feather
-considering: burton lux rocker

any other ideas, or input on the lux?


thanks!
