if you are looking to do all mountain that is agressive in the park as well.. than check out the Eminence.. by Roxy.. its a specifically for women company that utilizes Mervin Technology "lib tech" so it has banana tech with magnetrction edges as well as a the almighty camber rocker camber profile that is buttery and poppy at the same time.. Its a mid flex board at 5.. soft enough to jib and press and stiff enough to attack the choppy stuff all over the mountain!

I had a Burton Hero last year, I thought it was awesome. Then I demo-ed a Rossignol Jibsaw.

In 23 years it was the funnest board I've ever ridden. I sold the hero right after.
After riding the Jibsaw, the Hero seemed pretty shitty.

Rossignol has got there shit together, Whatever mythical concoction they use to make AmpTek, it works really well.

Plus they too have Magne-Traction, the Tesla doesn't, but @ $160 that is a smokin' deal.

Many, get out of jail free cards there.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Hey Jac,

I know I'm resurrecting this post but curious to know what board you ended up getting your gf as I'm a small rider as well.

Thanks!
