finally convinced the gf to step it up
 
finally got the girlfriend to step it up from her crappy alibi board to a shorter (shes 5'3 and 110lbs), flexier hybrid camber..so we got this BRAND NEW 2012 Pandora for 280$ plus a free lift ticket. Right now we're going to put her Burton Citizen bindings, but i was going to see if anyone knows of a step up pair for women...Stilettos?

so now we're a never summer couple haha and her stoke got multiplied by 10

looking to get my wife a new board, where'd you find it?

great deal...nice looking board too. NS are one of the few brands that do an OK job at design IMO.

To be followed by another x10 when she experiences the difference between a crappy old board and a new quality board.

Burton lexa's. You can probably find a gently used pair or last seasons somewhere, I know i got my wife some escapades really cheap on geartrade.

The GF switched over to Burton Scribes this year for her mid-flex camber board. Loves the response on them... She actually had trouble for the first couple runs with how much more responsive they were vs her original binders (K2 Bliss).

I second that. Or Ride DVA.

Nice choice. I think she'll be happy with the 146. I'm 5'6" and ~112lbs and was undecided between the two sizes last year. Went with the 146 and haven't had a single time I wished it were shorter.
