A wakeboard for the summer , thats what I am getting.

Anyway back to the topic Rome Agent all the way, I wanted a board that could handle it all groomers, glades, jumps, rails and off piste. I just got back from testing my board and I love it, the boards handles incredible in every type of terrain you trow at it. It has enough flex and Pop to handle anything in the park, but it maintains stability at high speeds in groomers. The thing is also a floater by nature in the pow, it's good in ice and corn as well. It's easy to handle in the glades too, I would say that it's the perfect as a allmountain board.

Try to find a Rome Graft or maybe the Gnu CHB MTX...

Otherwise, i'd say theres a Grudge on geartrade for 154 or so that would work on jumps and mountain and maybe some rail.

How about how much experience you have as a rider. I have a Graft, an Agent, and an Anthem as far as Rome goes. If you are fairly new to the sport then you might wanna get on somethgin that is a little more forgiving than an Agent and alot more forgiving than an Anthem. But if you are an intermediate rider an agent is a great tool to help you up the game, or at least it was for me. The Graft for the little bit or time I've gotten to ride it(because I got it at the end of the season) was awesome for switch riding landing switch etc it is super comfortable. It is slower than anything else I ride though which was kind of a bummer for me but you gotta give to get right.

Anyways you may wanna see what is out there that is women specific, i know Rome makes a couple sweet girls boards and other companies are doing the same. So basically do your reasearch and pick something that you think best fits what you are trying to accomplish.

Sweet Tap Dancing Baby Jesus Christ It's Dogzira!!!!!! Eh.
