Default Rocker for Women

I am looking for a new rocker board for freeriding.
I am 5'8 and around 130lbs wearing a women's size 8 boot, currently riding a 2009 146 Burton GTwin but would like to ride a board which will give me a bit more speed as well as being able to do butters/presses with ease, as I am an intermediate rider and want to progress and learn more tricks.
I'm from Australia so I mainly freeride on groomers or firm packed snow. Although I am going to snowboard in New Zealand and Japan so I feel I should get a longer board which will perform well in their conditions too.

I have my eye on the 148n Skate Banana or Gnu B-Pro or B-Nice. What are you suggestions on these boards for free riding? And what size would you suggest?

You probably want one of these:


In all seriousness....Never Summer would be a good choice. The Infinity-R would be a great slay all board. The Pandora-R would be more park oriented and can still get you around all over.

The GNU B-Pro or B-Nice would also be great choices. My GF rides a cambered 09 GNU B-Nice and loves it. They are both BTX this year.

I think I'd like a board for the ease of learning tricks that can also perform decently in the freeride section.
