I've never ridden a park board or anything noodly but your analogy fits everything I've ever heard.
Ha, her skis are only 146s! The main difference is that she's so stable and just fucking straight-lines it without fear.

edit: I was pretty proud of myself on my last couple of runs at Crystal last Saturday night though. I passed more people than those who passed me, including a bunch of skiers that I let drop in ahead of me (though they weren't bombing it like my wife likes to do). I don't have a GPS to measure my speed or anything but I felt like I was cooking on those runs, at least for me.
