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

First you need to dance nekkid around a spruce tree.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

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.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

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.
