Default Need new setup? Suggestions?

Hi guys I am looking to get a new board and bindings soon. Right now I have a Burton 06 board and it's really stiff. I'm looking for a softer, more flexible board. I'm a girl and I am 5'1 I don't want a REALLY flexible board but I want to be able to butter and start using the park more. Any suggestions would be great and I also need new bindings. My weight is 93lbs. Thanks

K2 Limelight, Flow Jewel, Salomon Gypsy, or an Arbor Cadence.

For sizing we'll need to know your weight.

I heard Union bindings are really good! I haven't tried them yet but I'm planning to buy a pair soon.

I want a board for buttering and park too... How soft should it be?

wow...itty bitty! Might want to look in the mid 130cm range for you. Thinking about buying my wife an Arbor Poparazzi. You could have a look maybe at the Arbor Cadence 139. Might be a touch long for you at 93# but from what I understand is a nice soft flex board. I think the Poparazzi is slightly stiffer but will still give you that nice butter youre looking for. Might also take a look at the Never Summer Pandora mini in a 136. As for bindings, I can only tell you about what my wife and I are riding. We are both riding Rome bindings. Absolutely love their bindings and their customer support and pricing is awesome. Good luck.

Damn girl you pocket size!!!

Shop for anything sub 140 in those decks I mentioned.

Union is... better next year. I'll stop at that.

For what you're looking to do check out K2 Yeah Yeahs, Salomon Stella's, or Flux GU30's.

Thanks! and yeah i'm really small and I'm riding a used board size 149 :O It's kinda awkward when I ride and try to go on boxes. I'll look into those boards though

It looks like the shortest poparazzi they make is a 145, but is not as loose as the Cadence, which is available in 139 (still a bit long I think). If you have the money have a look at that Pandora Mini. 134-136 should be pretty much good for you.

For the Pandora Mini in a 136, since it's a youth board do you think that it will have less quality or be different from getting a womens? I'm hoping this board to last me awhile
