Good Beginner Boards for my Fiance
So I have been snowboarding for about 7 years and I am pretty fluent with the brands and styles...for guys. When it comes to women, embarassingly, I dont really know much about the "other" brands.
I am looking for a good starter board for my fiance. We went boarding about 6 times last year and she used rentals, as we all know, if you can ride a rental you can ride almost anything. Any way, she is about 5'5" and 125 lbs. She rode a 143 last year but I am thinking about looking at a 145 or 146. She knows how to carve but thats about it. I want a freeride board that will hold up to beatings but I am not looking for something starting at $600 from Burton or Neversummer.
I am looking at a few boards from Dub, Tech Nine and LTD. In your infinite opinions, would these be alright starter brands for her or should I look for something else.
Thanks to all of you for your help!
