Default Need advice on women's boards for my girlfriend

My girlfriend and I both took up snowboarding last year, and picked up used setups. Now we're intermediate riders, comfortably on blues and performing modest carves and using turn shape and frequency to control speed. We spent all of last year on groomers, and will probably spend most of this year on groomers.

Part of our goals this year are to learn how to have more fun with our boards though, with ground tricks and hitting natural features. She's currently riding a 2004 Burton Feelgood 152, and I want to get her a new board for christmas. Her board right now if heavy and stiff.

I don't know anything about women's boards, what would you recommend? She's 5'6", wears a women's size 8.5 boot, and is about 150lbs without gear. She currently has Flow Prima-SE bindings in a large (women's equivalent of the NXT-AT). Thanks for your help guys, it could really make her christmas.

I got my girlfriend the Never Summer Infinity for this year and her friend used a Gnu B.Nice last year. In my opinion both phenomenal boards for women, the latter winning the Good Wood award. I think a 151 in either board would be a good size for her.

Got my GF a 10-11 GNU B-Pro(Barrett pro model) and she's madly in love with it, she's been riding for 6-7 years though so she was due for a more advanced board to match her skills. She loves the ability to blast through piles of crud and mangatraxion for steep gnarly conditions.

Yeah those are all awesome boards, I have to see if there's any way I can afford those. It would be easier to swallow a 300$ gift than a 500$ gift. I was thinking maybe the flow elation? I can find those around for 300$, it's 379$ straight from Flow
