Smoking Clash for a girl
 
As some of you may know from my other thread, my kid got her board stolen a couple of days ago so she decided it might be a good idea to start looking for another deck.

She's an advanced boarder and a serious park rider with main focus on big jumps (rather than rails). Last time she got a board was 3 years ago and she was smaller, as was her foot. This time she wants to look into men's snowboards as well as women's. Smokin Clash or Team Series in particular caught her attention.

Her stats:

145lbs
5'8
9.5 size foot, she wears men's Burton Hail Restricted

I have no knowledge of Smokin and I'm not nearly as good at park as she is so my board expertise is lacking. She's looking for a medium stiff rocker/camber park oriented board with good pop, size 152-154 (she absolutely refuses to go smaller than 152). What can you park riders suggest for a big powerful kid like herself?

Idk, but she is a good sized girl, a lot of girl park riders are quite petite.

Yeah, not her. She's pretty athletic so she's all muscle too.

Anyone? Park guys?

Coloradans (looking at you and your family of Smokin board owners, Argo)?

From your description her gender is cancelled out, she's to powerful for an ordinary girls board and from what she likes to ride I'd go with the Thrash Rocker profile. 152 team series or superpark depending on which she likes better. And slap the new burton lexa on there and holy shit what a set up.

I would also look at the arbor westmark and coda, the coda is a more jump deck and west mark an all around deck. Also the flow shifty and rome mod rocker should be on your list of jump boards. I like smokin boards but if she is short on cash those would not be on my short list at all.

My wife has a pyt and the vixen. the vixen is clash. It is an advanced stiff board for sure. It would be great for big jumps and all mountain riding.

Pyt is flat between the bindings and a little softer. My wife prefers it to the vixen. Great all Mountain, solid control, great in the park.

My son and I have team series, it is thrash rocker. Super stable on edge, playful, great on jumps and solid for big mtn riding.

Also. Clash is a base profile that smokin makes, you can get multiple boards with it.

Go through the site and see which ones she likes. Post up and I'll respond to those in particular. You can also call the shop and talk to the owner Jay or Wara. they are super cool and more than helpful. Jay is more knowledgeable about what would be best or I can help out too.

With her height/weight she should stick around a 152 in men's.

Yep, she kinda fell in love with Superpark Clash. She is choosing between this one and TRS, but mellow MT appeals more to her as well as the base. She's going for 152. She found Superpark on sale so she's all fired up now.

We have a couple super parks. Solid park board and stiffer, great for big jumps. great for all Mountain.

Very durable boards also. We have fun trying to destroy them with little luck. Plan on the superpark being a little stiffer to start when you get it.....
