Thumbs up My girlfriend needs some help with a board choice

She looking for a rocker.
Something with good damping, good flex's, 140-145cm
She's 5'6" 115
Her old board is a 06 Burton Feelgood.
We live in Michigan so Are hills aren't that big and we can have a lot's of ice, man made snow and groomed.




Any that can give me some info on the 2011 K2 VaVaVoom.

Never Summer Infinity-r

Has "Vario Grip" for the ice, is rockered, with excellent dampening and lot of pop.

K2 Vavavoom is about as close to a strict park board as you can get and is the very opposite of damp. Would be pretty chattery at high speeds, as it is so soft.

What do you mean by "good flex". Does she want a softer board than the Feelgood?

How experienced is she with regards to riding? The K2 has a 3* beveled edge which, if she doesn't have a bit of riding behind her, could be a little hairy trying to maintain grip on ice covered terrain. The NS Infinity as suggested by lilfoot would be a great bet for boards.

Yes something softer the her Feelgood but she is happy with damping of it.

Her skill level is above a beginner.

Just bought my girl a brand new K2 Lunatique with some Cinch's. It has pretty much everything we need, and she loves the design.
