Intermediate All Mountain Board - NS Infinity or something else?

Hi all,

I plan to buy a new board for my wife for Christmas. I am looking at the Never Summer Infinity but just wanted to check am I on the right track. Some more info - she is an intermediate rider, rides probably 80% groomers with a little powder and the odd ollie here and there. She's more of a cruiser than a charger. Can still cover a mountain! but not into 100MPH Carving!

I have a NS SL and love it, so was thinking of the same for her or close enough The Infinity

1) My concern is that it might be too soft, too much of a freestyle board or is it it? Anyone got one is it more freestyle or does it sound perfect for what she's looking for?

2) Any other suggestion of boards which might work? Is another board from NS better for her needs or another make?

Any tips from you ladies would be much appreciated!

Thanks
G

I have an Infinity from last year it is billed an all mountain board but I found it pretty flexy. Not a bad thing but more than I expected like I prolly could take it in the park. If your wife is mostly riding groomers and crusin' it would be fine but I don't like charging with mine because the RC bump btwn my feet makes me feel like I am gonna lose control sometimes if I am not on a decent edge but it may just be me (and if she does hard charge more NS does have the Lotus/Raven which is stiffer than the Infinity). If your wife comes from trad cambered decks you may wanna have her demo one (or try yours if the size isn't too huge) to get a feel for the alt profiled boards and how she likes the feel bc I did need to make adjustment to my riding at first. I personally like my boards to be more trad cambered-ish but NS boards are quality and Infinity is a great choice and is a FUN board she will want to take out and that is what it is all about right!

Thanks for the reply. Yeah my concern is it's too soft. I have an SL which is medium flex which I like but I play a little more than she does on the slopes....

Yeah I'll mull that one over. Worried though that the Lotus/Raven is too hard / charging for her maybe; or am I off with this?

Anyone anymore ideas / tips / ?

Thanks!
