Do you have a local shop that isn't a box store?
Thanks for the quick reply! I'm about 135lbs and 5'8". And I checked with my local shop and the only board they would have that would work for me is a 149 Burton Lipstick.

Well that is my shops best selling womens board and I don't know a girl that's ridden it and didn't love it. So it would be a great option. And shopping local is always better if you can.

Is it mainly a park board though? I'm looking to do mainly groomers, with a little park. Also, the mountain I ride on gets pretty icy and in looking at some of the Burton Lipstick reviews, it said it wasn't great on ice?

Are you looking at 2012 or 2013? 2013 is the old/new flat top and with frostbite wont have the grip problems the old one had. And its not too parky. In fact one of the girls I work with is considering getting another deck this year cause she wants something more parky than her Lipstick.

I'm looking at the 2012, which is the one that seems to have problems with ice. I can't afford to buy a 2013, and the local shop has a sweet deal on the Lipstick. But if it's not the right board, than I'd rather go for something else. Between the Deja Vu Flying V and the Lipstick, which one would you recommend? Thanks again for your help!

The Deja is going to be softer meaning you'll be able to flatten out the camber zones under foot actually engaging the frostbite. So that will be better on ice.

Is one better suited to groomers/ a little park? Since I'm tall, would the 149 be too short? Any other board suggestions beside those two? Thanks!

They will both do groomers and a little park just fine. The Lipstick is a bit stiffer thats really the main difference in the 2012's.

A board has no way to figure out how tall you are, it can only figure out how much you weigh.

Thanks for the reply! I'm going to go look at the Lipstick tomorrow and talk to one of the reps there. The other boards I'm considering are:
Nitro Fate

Burton Déjà vu Flying V

GNU B Nice BTX

Capita Saturnia

Nitro Mystique

Any opinions? Thanks!
