help with women's beginners board please!
I'm just starting out but want to get a board since I plan on going a lot this season to improve myself! I live on the east coast with the awesome icy conditions. I searched through a bunch of threads and here's the list I came up with
Open to any other suggestions! I'm kind of leaning towards the ride canvas but that seems to be listed more as an intermediate board so was wondering if that would be good for me to learn on (I'm still having issues with my toe side turns!).
I'm 5'6, 130lbs. Would 147/148 be a good choice? or 150/151 be better?
And these are the bindings I'm considering (leaning towards the flux...because I like how it looks :unsure:).
Consider burton feather if you're new rider, or if you're intermediate or advanced, or you want a long term board that you can grow into then burton feelgood in camber (better for ice than the flying V version)
rome maddies are nice...what my daughter uses, she is 5'4", 125# and rides 144, 148 and 155 depending on the snow and for her skis some 174 fatty twins that are 130mm under foot.
Solace if it's cheap
I started out on the ride solace in traditional camber. It was a good board, good price (a couple seasons old when I got it, paid $150 for a complete setup) It definitely helped me build my confidence riding because it was mellow and predictable; I was able to get down all the runs I tried on it. After a couple seasons I felt like I outgrew it, and wanted something more fun and to try the park, but the board was still in really good shape, so durability wise it's a winner. I'm about your size and I had a 146 which was comfortable.
If you can get it in the upper 140s size-wise and for a good price (like $100 tops, especially because I don't think they make it anymore) I say go for it. Otherwise, I'm sure there will be other, better recommendations coming your way. Sorry, I haven't tried any of the other boards you are considering so I'm no help there.
Did you have a budget in mind?
Have you looked into Arbor, GNU, and Never Summer? They have interesting edge profiles that cut into ice pretty well.
I know wired has a line of boards that are less than $200 that have been well received by various people on the forum. I know absolutely nothing about them, but I've seen their staff around the forum with give-aways and product reviews. Just something else to consider. They seem like a decent bunch so I'm sure if nothing else they could talk to you about their various house models and name brand boards they carry.
