Ride Berzerker, Highlife for you.
Ride Farah for your gf.
The Farah is discontinued for '14, but you might find a nice deal for the '13 one. I bought the Ride Farah 153 (which is the longest) at the very end of the last season. I've spent three days on it, so I can give only limited info, but since there are not too many girls around here, it's maybe better than nothing
I'm not a board hunter-gatherer; I buy one and ride it several years, so I've only owned a limited number of boards, and among them was only one other women's board.
I've +/- the same stats as your gf. I bought the Farah as my afternoon crud/mogul board but I ended up riding it mostly off-piste since we've been extremely lucky at those last days of the season: it was snowing every night and the resort was pretty empty, gosh, we've been the only ones to destroy all the fresh, all other ppl gathered on groomers. So my memories of the Farah might be a bit biased (pow-woozy), I really liked the board a lot.
I've actually only done three things with the Farah: Jump off the chair, hit a mogul run to get to the sc entry, ride 1000m vertical fresh, get back to the groomer and bomb this straight to get back to the chair as fast as possible. So this makes for three observations: Riding moguls with the Farah was fun! Itís easy to steer and dampens bumps if you happen to lose rhythm. Itís also pretty light and forgiving; fun to jump some moguls, since it won't kill you if you land akwardly between bumps. We had about 20cm at the most in those days. In this amount, it did a very good job on centered (in terms of inserts) stances. On a rather flat part of the fresh, it still floated nicely and I had not to lean back to stay atop. No idea how it performs in deep. Straight lining it on groomers, it was pretty stable. I tend to like boards that are long/stiff since my most important prerequisite is stability (I get easily irritated and donít dare to ride anymore if a board isn't stable). Although the Farah is rather short, it was stable and I trusted it.
I'm a super dummy riding switch, so I can' comment if itís particularly good at fakie/switch. What I can say is that when I did try, riding the wrong (
) direction was pretty easy compared to my other board.
