Default Board for the wife

yes, another what board do you recommend thread.

My wife rides a burton cruzer, 155 I beleive. She's looking at getting a new board. She got this board used a year ago, but I think it is a 5 year old board? We ride hard packed groomed trails in the midwest. Hit a few jumps. Play around in the park a little. She wants something with some flex. Do you think a twin directional would be a good choice? Also, she's about 5'9 145lbs. suggestions?

A twin directional is meant for riders who are going to be riding or landing switch. If she's going to get into the park then this would be a good choice, but if not it shouldn't really matter. As far as boards with good flex I would suggest looking at some of these: Burton Custom, Nitro T1, Burton Blender, or a Rome Detail.

I'd say get her a woman's specific board in a 153 or so, i believe that would be a good size for her. My vote goes for the bataleon violenza . I just ordered myself a bataleon and am dying to test out the tbt since i've heard nothing but good things.

My wife loves her Never Summer Infinit-R. It is really light, twin directional with some setback, looks good, and has reverse camber. The tip and the tail have a camber to them so they ride similar to a regular board but are more forgiving.
