snowsam17 No problem! I now have 2 full seasons on the board so let me know if you have any questions. I still highly recommend it

Filigree Thanks for posting this review! I am looking for a new board and Flow Jewel is one of "candidates" so it's great to read reviews from people who ride it

Construction wise? Not really... Although women tend to have smaller feet for the same weight person as a guy, so they tend to be more narrow, and available in shorter sizes.

Nothing wrong with a girl riding a mens board, and a smaller guy riding a womens board.

I believe they also tend to make them a little softer than their male equivalent. Here's Priors comments on the Brandywine, their female version of a freeride board:

"The Brandywine, Priorís high performance, directional freeride board for women, draws a smooth, stable and fast line through all snow conditions. With a narrow waist and softer flex than the Menís Freeride, the Brandywine allows women to drive the board harder and maximize energy transfer for the best ride possible."

Optikal_Illuzion Thanks for the review. I should post up a review of my board... but I feel like I wouldn't know what I'm talking about since this is only my 3rd season with maybe 50 days total on the hills...

cav0011 One other thing in case girls are reading this and care. The board is listed on flow's website as having a 2000 extruded base, in reality it has thier 4000 sintered base. (at least that is what the board says it has and when i waxed it, it "looked" like most sintered bases do as you wax them.)

Thanks! And yeah I had to use reviews of men's boards to figure out what I wanted, and just hope the women's counterpart would be comparable and just as good... Not fun. Hopefully we can get more girls to start doing reviews, and I think AngrySnowboarder is going to start women's reviews so that will help a ton.

snowsam17 I completely agree, it feels like a high-end board but is cheap as hell. Dogfunk was having a sale and I got the board and 2 sweatshirts for under $400. Magical.
