Ladies...advice!

Looking to get a new board this year...whatcha all think. Im a big foot - 9.5 so i find a lot of women's boards are just too narrow. Im on a K2 Satori 151 right now, no complaints with it. Lemme know!

Just out of interest, what's your experience level? I believe the K2 Satori is a cheaper, softer beginner's board. If you are looking to progress then something like the K2 Luna might take you a bit further.

I can't even give you mediocre advice with foot size and weight for women as I haven't really got a feel for it yet and I don't know if it works the same as for men, but I'm interested to find out. Maybe this is something we should look at for our FAQ?

Do you suffer from toe-drag on your current board? If not, then that's a good starting point when looking at a new board. I certainly don't want to drive you away from these forums, but maybe a specific women's snowboarding forum might be able to provide some further insight if there's not much feedback here?
