female Help choosing a board for intermediate rider

Hi I am an intermediate rider and learnt on New Zealand fields so quite icy and hard packed.
I am currently in Canada and am wanting a good all around mountain board as I will be doing powder runs, groomed and I may start trying out the park.
I want something that is going to help me up my level of riding but have been told if I get something to advanced and can actually hold you back.
I have been looking at the new Never summer women's boards and am tossing between the infinity or the lotus?
Does anyone know much about these boards and for what I want it for know what would be best suited for me?
I am around 123 lbs (56kgs) and 155cm in height
Also if you have any other suggestions to help me out will be much appreciated

Thanks guys

If ur intermediate...just step it up and get an advance/expert....
go buck wild...you'll get bucked off...till you say fuck this...I'm riding the bitch. Really the only difference is your attitude...you want a board where you can step up your attitude....it really sucks when you want to charge and the board will not do it or folds up cause its too soft.

I'd recommend a gnu b-pro...stiff hard charging...the infinity is really an intermediate board...pretty soft and not in the same league; a inbetween board would be a roxy envi.

My daughter is the same size and rides a 144 cambered stiffy for goofing around, 148 cambered stiffy for bombing groomers and 155 for deeper poo...she's an aggressive rider.

I'm about 125/130lbs and 5'5. I ride a 2012 NS Lotus 149' and I absolutely love it! Its definitely an advanced board but that shouldn't really be an issue for you because it rides smooth and is killer on the mountain. I would definitely say that it is a freeride board and made for charging the mountain. If you plan on using it for that then I'd definitely recommend it. However if you are looking for a more versatile board to play with I'd shy away and look for more of an all-mountain board. I'm just speaking from personal experience, so I hope that helps you out a bit!
