why would she be considering the SL? Go for the Infinity as it is for females.

The reason i am considering the Infinity is because of my small feet.

Tell Heather that :P

But seriously, they are very similar boards. It would be nice to hear from someone who has been on both.

I've got size 8us feet and the SL is fine. Half a boot size won't matter.

Evo damp rating Is quite low. Don't think it would be suitable for free riding?

From what I've read it can handle the mountain just fine, just not bombing down steeps perhaps.

my boot size is 7.5 and I ride an evo 155. Waist widths on the SL and evo are both fine for you. If you like the SL 151 I would go for it.
