Female Park Board Help!!

I'm 5'1 100lbs, currently riding the Roxy Ollie Pop 141. The board is a GREAT all arounder that I have taken everywhere on the mountain. However, I don't have very strong legs and when it comes to park, I find it still a bit too stiff to jib and go on boxes / rails. Since I want to focus on a bit more in the park this season, I thought I'd get a softer jib board. Any comments on the following choices please?

- Signal Vita Rocker 143
- Capita Space Metal Fantasy 143

Any new suggestions welcome!

Thank!!

Signal seems to make a great board; out of the two if it were me I would go with the Vita Rocker. But, I don't really ride park and don't have experience with either of those boards. I would just like to try a Signal haha.

The K2 VaVaVoom seems to be a good park deck, too.

If you like Mervin tech (like your Ollie Pop), check out some of the Gnu park boards like the girls Park Pickle or maybe the B-Street.

Get the space metal. You'll be more than happy with the board. Its pretty much the girls version of the horrorscope, which is an awesome jib board. A friend of mine has the SMF and she loves the board.

I've ridden my Signal Flat Park quite a few times now and I give it a thumbs up. It's not the same board as the one you're looking at, but construction-wise I'm very happy with Signal so far. The board is light, sintered base, and very even and predictable flex. I still suck in the park, but I can very much see myself progressing well with it.

Keep in mind the Vita has quite a lot of rocker towards the tips. No idea how that will make the ride feel, but I've read a few posts from Nivek who rode the Rocker saying it's surprisingly fun cause of it. I imagine it'll make presses easier to pull off at the least.

My daughter is a couple of inches taller than you and 15 pounds heavier and she's really liking the K2 VaVaVoom 143 this season. She also has the Ollie Pop but prefers the K2 in the park.
