Might want to look into something on the stiffer side, too. Any chance you/she can demo?
No she cant demo, But i'll look out for a 155 - 158 board that is stiff on the flex scale. Thanks for your help.

Im going to try and sauce a 155cm board. As i think she will need a future proof board.

But if this is a deck meant for her to learn the basics on and have some fun, the difference between a 154 and a 152 might be negligible? If she progresses quickly and gets serious about riding, something longer might be best.

Do you know what the weight range is on the 152?

Sorry I can't ID the board/bindings you posted. As far as board size, I'd think based on her weight something more mid 150's would be best, but if you can get the Ride board for a deal, it's probably fine for her to learn on. I have a Ride with the Lowrize rocker. It's a decent profile for sure, and will likely be kind in the learning process.

Here's a review on that year's board by a heavier female rider, also with size 8 boot Snowboard Review: 09-10 Ride Crush

Hope this helps some!
Thanks for the reply. The ride board only comes in 152, is that still ok?

WuzzA21 Bumb for answer on 152 size board, as I can pick up an unused ride crush 09/10 board for next to nothing.

board for wife.

Hey guys, my wife wants to get into boarding. And she is a beginner.

She is 165cms and 100kgs, and a size US 8/EUO 41 boot. She has some islander in her.

Would she need a bigger board to compensate for her weight/skill level.
Eg, 156-158? Or would a 152 be ok??
