Girls' boards and freestyle/freeride?

Hey all,

Couple of questions...sorry if they're dumb ones. I'm looking to upgrade my setup, but just need a bit more advice and guidance.

- when we talk about a freestyle/freeride board, is there any disadvantage to using a freestyle board for just down the mountain riding? I'm thinking long term I'd like the versatility of my board being a freestyle board for when I get more into riding park etc, but for now most of the riding I do is just freeriding.

- has anyone heard anything good/bad/brilliant/ugly about any of these boards: Forum Craft, Rome Vinyl, Rome Blue, Burton Troop? I know they're all pretty different boards with regards to freestyle/freeride, but I guess once I get the first questions sorted out, I'll have a bit more direction of where I'm going!

I'm about 158cm, 50+kg, mainly freeride, but have started riding a little bit of park and definitely want to get more into it. I think my boots are about a size 6, and I'd say I'm an intermediate rider.

Thanks in advance for your help!

-Anything is doable with any board. It's a matter of what YOU like. I personally prefer the freeride deck in the park, as opposed to the other way around, since I freeride ALOT.

-Not sure on the Burton or Forum, but the Blue is Romes all mountain board for chicks, and the Vinyl is their park slayer.

youre gonna feel more in control when going faster on a freeride board than on a freestyle board.
