Default Board for girlfriend

I've been looking for a board for my girlfriend and i'm not quite sure which direction to steer her. (Never paid much attention to womens boards) She is an intermediate rider and wants something all mountain. But probably a little on the stiffer side. We recently had a baby and she put on a few pounds so it needs to be a bigger size board. A lot of womens boards don't go past 153cm. Anyways, she's been looking at the ns infinity, k2 duchess, or rome vinyl. Any suggestions or new ideas?

First 2 are solid choices. The Infinity has the reverse camber to it'll ride different than the other two but its such a solid ride I'd put that as top choice.

The lotus is a slight pintail geared more for freeriding over all mountain freestyle. You want the infinity R from never summer not the lotus.

Option Bella is a fairly stiff all mtn fr sticks...why not just let her choose and you pay the tab. Arbor Push, K2 Mix for fr (or va voom for fs), Gnu Barrett Pro are others.

K2 Luna Board 210
Burton Progression boot- 110
Oakley Stockholm Polarized - 55

I picked up a Flow Infinia for my girl towards the end of last year... took a shot in the dark with it, had heard good things but never had the chance to ride the flow boards. In any case I'm super impressed with it. Good build quality has a nice textured base to help prevent it from sucking into wet snow(though kind of a bitch when waxing) and seems to be a good all mountain ride for her. She stepped up from Ride Solace
