Default Buttery/Flexy Women's Board - Advice Needed

I am in the market for a new board and want some advice/feedback on any recommendations. I am an intermediate rider, enjoy freeriding but more interested in building my park and jibbing skills and after a board that has quite a lot of flex.

I am 5ft 3, approx 120 pounds. I currently ride the 2012 K2 Va Va Voom, 143cm. I love it but find it quite stiff and near impossible for me to butter on, and improve ground tricks etc. I am working on leg strength but am still after a new softer board.

After a bit of research and feedback from a few friends the GNU B-Street, and the Capita Spacemental Fantasy keep getting mentioned. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be riding this board in Colorado for the season but would also like to be able to use it in Aus as well.

Cheers

I don't have much experience, but have been doing a lot of research. I just bought this board for my wife to learn on. Check out the reviews on this link. Sierra V Spot Snowboard Women's Snowboard Reviews & Sale | trusnow.com

Well the VVV is the female companion to the WWW. If this was a dude asking for something softer cause he couldn't butter his WWW I would tell him to sack up and learn to press a snowboard. But you're a girl so I wont do that.

Maybe try a Salomon Gypsy?

The B-Street is for sure stiffer than the VVV though.

Space Metal Fantasy for the win. The B-street is soft, but not as soft as the SMF.

Also check out Signal - I've heard they have some of the softest park boards on the market.

I've never heard anyone say the VVV is stiff though...weird

Daugher, about your size, a couple years ago loved salomon gypsy 148/145?, said it was pbj...pop, buttery and jibby. Rode it at park camp for a week and said it handled jumps, jibs and she could ollie couches.

Cheers everyone.

Yeah I blew my knee out a few seasons ago so still working on leg strength, and obviously I must have very weak legs? Apparently girls do have weaker legs than boys tho... I can butter on my VVV and don't get me wrong, love the board and am keeping it, just can't get as much flex out of it as I would personally like for presses, etc...
