Default Womens board help

Hi all,

My girlfriend likes to mess around on the mountain as much as I do. She has been boarding for over 3 years and wants something flexible. I currently have an EVO-R. I am looking to buy her a board that is flexy, twin tip and RC. I have been looking at the Never Summer Infinity-R and the Never Summer Pandora. Not sure what board to go with. Anyone have any suggestions or can tell me which board is a better choice? Thanks.

Hey, I have the Infinity-R, it's not super flexible and is kind of heavy. Between the 2, I think if I were you I would definately go with the Pandora. It seems much more playful and suited to the park whereas the Infinity is more all mountain.

I agree: the Pandora would be a better choice. Also consider the Gnu B-street, Roxy Eminence, and Capita Space Metal Fantasy. They are all flexy boards with some sort of alternative camber technology. I have the B-street and love it - flexible enough for jibbing, but still holds up well all-mountain, floats well in pow, and has magnetraction for icy days. The Roxy Eminence is actually the exact same board, just with different graphics.

I've heard the B-street and the Ollie Pop are pretty similar, but the B-street and Eminence are exactly the same. Here is Shayboarder's review of the Eminence, in which she mentions the B-street: Snowboard Review: 08-09 Roxy Eminence BTX – Shayboarder.com.

Yeah, the B-street is a lot lighter and I find it a lot more flexible too. I have my Infinity-R for pow, slush, and bumpy/tracked out terrain. My B-street is my go-to board for most days, though. I feel like they complement each other well. And after riding my Infinity, the banana camber on the B-street was also very easy to adjust to.

What about the Never Summer Lotus -R?
Val Surf*::*Snow*::*Boards*::*Womens Snowboards*::*2010 Lotus-R 146

The flex is 4 on this board and I am concerned about the weight. So I guess its between the Lotus -R and the Pandora. I want something she can play with and have fun. I have an EVO -R and I am in love with it. I want her to enjoy a board just as much as I enjoy my NS.

What I am looking for for her is a freestyle board thats flexible. They say the Lotus is similar to the Premiere, not sure if thats a freestyle board. A board with RC is a must.
