She will be the first to tell you that she isn't athletic - doesn't go to the gym, doesn't really do any sports (although when we first met I told her she would probably have to learn how to snowboard ). She actually gets winded tying her boots and walking to the lift from the parking lot... but I think she does a decent job of managing that board.
Thanks lonerider for all your help. Yeah, the Blunt is pretty soft..I thought I would get into freestyle a bit more. My progression at it has been at a standstill which is why I was looking at a more freeride oriented board with the occasional lap or two through the park.

I will look at the Cobra and SL. Sorry for the threadjack everyone...
