Default Narrow womens boards?

Does anybody make narrow boards for girls with small feet? My girlfriend has size 5 boots and rides a NS Pandora 146. I just noticed that her foot doesn't come within a cm of her edges. She's a solid rider, but this must make it pretty difficult to pressure her edges?

I went from a mid-wide board to regular width (size 10.5 boots) and it was a world of difference. I'd imagine it would make her life a lot easier too.

adjust the footbed and toe and heel of the bindings if you can to the edge of the board. Most people don't ever adjust the bindings or know they can do that.

Burton and flux bindings I know you can .

for future reference....measure once

I got small feet and its a world of difference...

but a remedy is to find or make some riser plates which will work well if you are stuck with that board

I've adjusted the bindings and she's been on the board for 3 seasons, so definitely not stuck with it.

Just wondering if anybody makes a narrow board for small feet?

I don't know of any brands that specifically make narrower boards for small feet. I know there are companies like Donek that custom make boards and let you specify the desired waist size but it's $$$. In general, boards designed for carving and racing will be narrower. There are also some boards that are just narrower than others (eg. Forum Star). Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator may be able to help you find a few decent options.

Just adding some content for future readers. Member of small boot support group here, (Men's size 7 25cm foot 135lbs) and have been looking for current and old stock narrow boards to test out. Here are some that I've found for future reference.

There is no rhyme reason to the list, the boards cut across all stiffness levels and price points.
