Question Forum Star Snowboard for Wife

Hi guys!

I'm thinking about getting the Forum Star Snowboard for my wife. I have a question of you all. My wife is 5'1'' and 112 lbs. Do you think this board in 146cm would be too big for her? It seems to be just out of the range I see recommended for her height on charts, but I'd like to hear from all in regards to this specific board, rather than some generic chart. I can get it for $99, which would be an awesome price for a first board.

Forum Star Snowboard - Women's 2013 | evo outlet (I'm not getting it from here. This is just for board details.)

Edit:
Here it is at trusnow Forum Star Womens Snowboard Reviews & Sale | trusnow.com. It says 146 weight range is 80lbs-130lbs, is that possible?

Thanks,
Sabin

Height irrelevant. Weight right in the middle of the range.

What's her skill level?


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Seems like it would fit the bill to me. Soft rockered board seems well suited for a beginner.

LOL @ the camber profile being specifically designed for women though. Pure marketing gibberish.
