New board..Ride Rapture? Need Advice
 
Hi
I need some advice on the Ride Rapture. I am riding a 2007 Rossignol Reserve 139 for the past 2 yrs and i have struggled to turn the board without jumping..This is frustrating since i am athletic and have taken many lessons..My 8 yr old is light years better than me lol..

I am:
5'1", weigh 110

The Ride Rapture 143 was recommended by the local boardshop. Basically the guy said i need a rocker board.. The reviews say this is an good one for beginners but will get squirrly at speed and carving..

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I can't help you with choosing the board, but if you want to try one inexpensively, you can get one for less than 100 shipped here:

Ride 2012 Women's Rapture Snowboard

They've got some incredible deals on closeouts. I have no affiliation but just bought a High Life for 160 shipped and spoke with customer service and they're helpful.
