Default New setup for girlfriend, Comments?

I was looking to purchase a new setup for my girlfriend.

She's about 5'4" 110lbs size 7 shoe.

I was thinking about getting her the new Burton Restricted Nugget 138; the one with Mona Lisa on it.

Then I was thinking about some Autumn colored Burton bindings and then letting her choose whatever boots because I feel like I would pick the wrong thing...

She has been riding for about 10 years but her last board is a piece of crap and has to go; she likes to hit the park once in a while but carving is her thing. I have a 2010 Burton custom x with the ICS and I love it, thought that she would also.

Suggestions?

I'd say thats a bit short, especially if she enjoys carving. I'd be looking more 145ish.

Not sure if you're familiar with the board.... But it allows you to downsize 8-10cm

Isn't it more of a park/jib board though?

Not that it would probably matter to her, if it had the Mona Lisa on it.

It's a borderline case. The NUG is a great board and you can carve fine on it but that is not its strong suit. She is pretty light so the board might not be too soft but it is still a full-on rocker board without any decent edging technology (Yes, I know it has frostbite edges but IMO that's a useless technology).

I'd say she might enjoy the board becuase it's very playful. But if she's so much into carving I'd go with a Roxy or Never Summer. Those have much better edge hold.

Thanks. I think she would love the flex and versatility. As soon as I ordered the board she told me without even knowing that she wants to get more into the park scene haha. I think I hit a home run on this one.
