Need help looking for a girls board
 
I have a friend who recently had her board stolen and i'm trying to help her find a new board, shes about 5'4 90 pounds (shes a stick haha) size 8 boots. She can cruse down the hills alrite but is still learning and she wants a board that will last a while. no park, just riding down the mountain. any advice on size/brand/model would be awesome! i know with these end of the season sales she should be able to find something good for a decent price and I told her id help find a board. thanks :D

after some research on here for my gf who is also a beginner. i narrowed it down to the gnu b-nice or ride rapture. reasonably priced too.

A Never Summer Infinity might do the trick.

I also have a 2009 Never Summer Pandora 146 that needs a good home. It's regular camber. Flexy. Light. But nice and stable.

I think these are all good suggestions, as I was in the same position grabbing a stick for my girlfriend of similar build and skill.

I recommended the following
Gnu B-Nice 148
NS Pandora 149
NS Infinity 147

I ended up on the B-Nice, for $312 on sale, as she was really keen on having magnatraction (did I spell it right?). Might want to be quick if you decide on the Infinity since I don't think there's many left.

Flow Jewel 143. RockCam and a convex base with one of the best sidecuts on the market. I could ride the mens version anywhere.

What board was she riding before? Does she prefer stiffer or softer boards? Longer or shorter?

90 pounds is pretty small, so a lot of all-moutain boards may be too long for her. I weigh 105 and have ridden boards between 140 and 145. I would put her on a board in the low-140's.

Check out the Roxy Eminence 143.
