Looking to buy 1st board
 
I'm looking for a deck for my girlfriend. She is a beginner (so am I) and after riding the rentals entire season I think she is ready for her own board.
She is 167cm at 110lb. She gradually progressed to riding greens and I want to help her keep her progress with something "catch free edge ". I have two boards that I'm considering: 142cm K2 Bright Lite and 140cm Burton Feather. Please tell me what you think

Both are good boards she will do fine on them, I got my wife a deja vu as she hated the full rocker of the feather. I would make sure her boots fit more then what board she has right now.

I know that boots are very important and it was the first think I've got for her. They fit perfectly as is but they are also moldable, so I it will give her some flexibility if she will feel that it has to be adjusted

yeah i would not worry to much about anything else, just making sure she stays dry and has fun. I upgraded my wife to goretex this year and she could not be happier, but she also got away with 10,000 m for years also.

When I was looking for my daughter I stumbled on a Burton Social at an unbeatable price. They'll say it's a little more 'Parkish' but lets be honest, it's a beginner board. I'd put money on her not seeing the difference in that and a feather.

I also looked at a gnu b-nice.
