Default Thoughs on a girl's/women's board

Hey guys,

I've been looking at snowboards for my daughter. She's 17, 5'4" and 120lb-ish and not likely to grow much more. Not sure of her shoe size, but women's 6 sounds familiar (but that may be my wife's size). She's spent a season on a snowboard with half a dozen lessons and is basically hooked. I'd like to get something that will see her through to the intermediate level. Looking for a freeride setup, say 30-40% park.

I'm currently considering a Rome Jett or Blue with Madison bindings. Do these sound like reasonable options? Also, should I be looking at a 147-ish or 151-ish length board (or longer maybe)?

The blue is a plank man I couldn't flex the 151 and I've got 45lbs on your daughter. Anyways I'd say if she's looking at doing that much park look at something in the 147ish size. Also check out the K2 Duchess, Mix, Atomic Polarity, Never Summer infinity, to name a few.

my girlfriend's on her second K2 Dutchess and wont ride anything else, seems like it would fit your daughter's riding needs pretty well too.
