Good starter board for girlfriend

Hey everyone,

I was hoping to get a few ideas for a board for my girlfriend. She's only been three times and has progressed through making S turns pretty quickly. Im looking for a board that would be a basic progressing beginner board for her mainly to save time and hassle for renting.


Looking for something fairly cheap and with the season coming to an end, hopefully can grab something of quality for less money too

What did she learn for a board I am guessing reg camber, so you may want to stick to that or a hybrid that will have kind of the same feel. Stole this from nivek Bataleon Distortia, Flow Jewel, or a Nitro Mystique I also like the roxy ollie pop (here)

Next year's Ollie Pop is SO fun! I think all the tech is the same as this year's. That would definitely get my vote.

My GF has a Ride Canvas, pretty similar. She had a stiffer board before this one, can't remember what type but when she got on this board I saw instant improvement and comfort in her riding. She loves it.

I'll throw in K2 Lunatique (flat + rocker). Fun, good for starting and up to black diamonds, and they donate to breast cancer. Looks pretty too, that's important for many girls...

Only concern is durability
