Thoughs on a girl's/women's board
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)?
