intermediate - advanced boards?
I was wondering what the difference between an intermediate - advanced board compared to a beginner - intermediate? I am looking to get a new board but the one I have my eye on is intermediate - advanced. I do not want to get anything to hard to handle but I know I want something better then the board I have now which is a Morrow. I have been riding basicly 1-2 times per week since January and have taken 3 lessons. I found the Never Summer infinity with the rocker in my size.

if your riding 1-2 times a week for 3 months you should easily be in the intermediate range imo and the NS will be fine for ya. typically a more advanced board will be stiffer, longer, and a more intense side cut but each one is different.

a great board that is women's specific is the rome blue. i started in december, rented a couple of beginner boards, a burton feelgood, and i bought the rome when i was definitely still a beginner. i've been boarding 3/4 days out of every 2 weeks so i've stepped up my game. when i first got the board i had the same thought as you, but if you can handle an intermediate/advanced board, it will just make you a better rider. just attack it. you'll be fine.

the rome blue is a great board. not too stiff, it's responsive and it holds an edge like nobody's business. highly recommend it. it's a perfect intermediate - advanced all mountain board.

Youll be fine. I have it and rode it since probably week 3, so I basically learned and progressed on it, still ride it and love it. but now my season is over :(

^^^the rome blue is actually a pretty stiff women's freeride board,so i would say thats probably not the best choice for you. the infinity-r is much more geared to all mountain, and the rocker is actually a bit more forgiving when it comes to edge catches.

Yea if you can get an Infinity-R in the proper size, which can be very hard right now as they sold out everywhere, get it!

Score, I got my 147 infinity-R!! My other board was a morrow 149 which was crap and to big! I cannot wait until Sunday!!!!

I just figured I would update. We went out on Sunday, had a blast. I love this board. It responds so quick and feels very stable going fast. At first I was a little scared since it seemed faster but by the end of the day, I really got the feel of it. It turns on a dime, did everything I asked it to do and I feel I can really tweek what skills I do have.
