Best girls board from Lib/Gnu/Roxy? Size?
 
Buying my chic a board for Christmas, but want her to pick it out. I have a Trice, SB, Magic, and a Skate with C2. I let her ride my 152 SB and she fell in love with how quick it turns and she never caught an edge. She's been riding a Burton for years, can't recall the model, but really wants one with BTX. I'm looking at the Torah Bright, a skate banana, or Gnu, maybe the pickle. Anyone have a recommendation or opinion?

Also, what size? She's about 123lbs, 5'6" and size 8 boots. Probably a 148. I felt like the 152 was a bit long for her.

Thanks

Gnu B pro is pretty tits...if she is fairly aggressive... and if less so then perhaps a Lady's Choice

From those brands I've only ridden the Roxy Ally, which is pretty much the girl version of the Skate Banana - I'm a similar weight and boot size and I have a 143 Ally, it's great for jibbing but is probably a bit on the small side if you're taking it anywhere other than the park. 148 is a better all-round size, you can give or take a cm without noticing too much.

I would steer away from full rocker if you're going all mountain though, RCR or CRC profile is better for speed and stability in my experience. Heard good things about the Ladies Choice, it's on the list of boards I would love to own.

This is the best deal around, don't let the price fool you.

Idk but think the stake banana is only reverse/banana/rocker...no c2. I'd steer away from a rocker only...get a c2btx. I quickly hated my skate banana for what I ride.

skate banana is reverse camber only.


they have a special edition superbanana which is c2btx

My wife rode a camber eminence for a few years before switching to this for the the new season......

She loves it. Her confidence has definitely gone up with c2 and the a.s.s.

Good luck

I was looking at the A.S.S. for myself with the Space Case. Curious how quick/easy it is to turn.

Thanks!
