Looking for a new board - need some advice
So im a woman and I consider myself pretty advanced in snowboarding. But I'm looking for a new board. Currently I'm riding a k2 151 mix. It's a little too large for me and I'm looking for a 142ish. Not too big with park riding but I enjoy darting down the mountain. I'm curious if anyone here could lead me to a good enjoyable board. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg either. Looking for a 2013-2012 model. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It sounds a lot like my wife's riding style… She picked up the Never Summer Onyx… She loves it! Worth a look. The reviews on the board are very good and she rips on that thing.

Thats a big drop in size, you should probably list your weight and shoe size and more people will help you out.

I'm a fan of the's fairly stiff and aggressive...check the weight will want to be in the middle to mid heavy range...if ur in the lighter range it will feel fairly stiff and you will have to be fairly aggressive....definitely a fun board to hotrod around. (Im a guy with small feet, at 180# and the 156 Bpro is the right size for being super playful) If u want something a tad more playful/softer flex but generally the same tech...gnu ladies choice.
