Buying for my girlfriend

Hi guys,

I'm buying a board for my girl and she is bloody small 5ft , uk 3 boot size and weighs 7st (110lbs) we are looking at progressing to park riding this season as well be riding in tignes for 3 weeks , I'm looking at the salmon lark board 138 which is the size frosty size calc. Gives , is this a good choice for a girl that wants to smash it up but gets a little tired at the end of the day?

Cheers
J

The Eco pop only comes in a 145 ? Would this be too large for a midget ?

My wife had a forum star, it was soft so if your into big jumps i would look elsewhere but it was reverse camber and had a narrower waist width than most boards. She used it to learn on but doesn't ride park so i switched her to something else when she had more confidence. I think it comes in a 142, maybe smaller.

I think forum and burton have smaller waist widths than most companies so i would probably look there if your girl has small feet.

My girlfriend bought the Ride OMG a I got her the Ride Fame bindings for it. She loves the set up. 140 is the smallest size though.

From reviews, value for money the limited sizing options and perrks of the board (the damened feel for her little legs) i think this sounds good for my Girl, the only thing i want to know is that this board will perform not only in the park but also as an all mountain board, can anyone back this up please ?

Cheers
