Default Women's park board recommendations wanted...

My current board is a Palmer Liberty 154, and I love it for freeriding and carving down the back hills, but i would like to get something i could actually use in the park. So far my list includes:
Burton The Social
Burton GTwin
Capita Space Metal Fantasy FK
GNU B-Nice
K2 Fling
K2 Vavavoom
Never Summer Pandora
Roxie Ollie Pop
Technine Women’s Jib

I think the Never Summer Pandora is at the top of my list so far but if anyone else has any suggestions/comments i'd appreciate it. Bindings are next so if there are any recommendations for those that would be awesome too.

I'm 5'6", 130 lb., and size 9.5 feet if that helps...

My daughter's current two favorite boards are her Roxie Ollie Pop and her DC BFF, both with Burton Lexa bindings. She does a lot of boxes, rails and medium jumps and spends some time in the pipe.

What kind of park riding? Pipe, jumps, rails, jibbing?
WIll you want it to perform on all-mountain riding as well or is this JUST a park board?

I own a Capita SMF and enjoy it - a lot of fun, stupid soft for rails and butters.

I would recommend the B-street over the B-nice for park. The B-nice is a bit more beginner all-mountain oriented, while the B-street is classified as a jib board. It's softer, but I find that it performs well in powder and general all-mountain riding.

The Ollie Pop is similar to the B-Street, as is the Roxy Eminence.

The Fling is another good option: good pop and a fun board for a good price. The VVV is an excellent board for rails and jibbing, but wouldn't be suitable for all-mountain riding.

Never Summer is always a good choice.

Bindings: Burton Lexa, Rome Madison.

I think i want to do mostly jumping, because that's the hill i go to really focuses on that, but it'd be nice if it'd also do jibbing/rails/pipe fairly decent.

If you really aren't feeling any of these suggestions, it's not uncommon for a girl to ride a guys park board.

Look into it. (I personally believe companies based on guys boards make better products, sorry for my opinion!)

OP: Ollie Pop, Fling, or Pandora for your preferences. A lot of the other boards wouldn't have a lot of pop.

I don't know much about Burton boards, but the Social may also be a good option...

Nixon: I firmly believe that women should buy women's products. The female market is small and we have few options as it is - support women's products

daughter, 5'4", 130, size 8.5; her pow stick is old option kendra starr 155, groomer is bella 148, park is 144...salomon lush...discontinued (cambered twin and stiffer) for jumping due to it being more stable for take-offs and landings for bigger jumps. She demo'd for a week at camp the salomon gypsy 148 (rockered twin) for jibbing, says its really playful and wanted it til she switched to doing more park skiing.
on the lush
