Talking Reccommendation for a girl, plz

A female friend has asked me to find a decent board for her to start off snowboarding and im really into the dark when it comes for womens equipment, so all female snowboarders out ther, please help

She is on a tight budget so she's not looking for anything fancy and certainly nothing expensive.

She's regular, 5'5 height and 140 pounds. She's just starting and looking for an all-mountain, freeride, forgiving twin board.

Also if you have any binding recommendations, it would be awesome.

I just put my gf on a Ride Baretta with DVA bindings and she loves them. The Baretta is slightly directional. Good luck!

Tell her to make sure she saves some money for a good pair of boots.

happy feet= good day of riding

She won't notice that much of a difference between a high-end board and a low-end board, but she'll definitely notice the difference between a good pair of boots vs. a crappy pair of boots

Don't just live life on the edge, jump off it!
