|twowheeled||If you are set on MTX find a board that has the mild version. I have a rossi board with 7M edges, its not for beginners. Doesn't like to be smeared and it will cut into soft snow and not want to let go. My board with mild mtx is perfect, don't notice it until I hit an icy patch and get that extra bit of help.|

But so long as rocker underfoot camber inbetween will not have my girl busting her ass into oblivion and is rather forgiving, I am one hundered percent satisfied

KayZ and I are passing on the b-nice...pretty sure its a rockered/not cambered and a 151. Could be a good board and at a decent $ for someone. btw no association

Okay guys, thanks all for the input.
I looked at all the Roxy choices and all the other boards out there, but came across an unrefusable deal.
Just managed to grab a new 2014 Rossi Diva Magtek pricematched (thanks evo.com) down to $250.
Pretty happy about the choice - just a few quick questions tho, rocker underfoot and camber inbetween is a noob friendly shape, am I correct? It's the less edge catchy however more stable version of full on rocker banana?

Most roxy/gnu ladies boards won't fall much under $300 for a new board. I've done my time watching their prices. Just keep an eye on eBay and craigslist if $200 is your budget. Something will show up. There are also a few used boards on geartrade.com right now. My wife learned on camber just fine, so don't be scared of not having banana. Plenty of good used boards out there.

I would look at the Velvet Guru from GNU. Currently around 315 but its a great all mountain board that your girl can progress on and will suite her for a long time. Has .5 magnetraction so it gives really good edge hold.

New at REI
My lady demoed the Ladies choice which is kinda the big sister to this board. Only difference is the ladies choice has a sintered base and full magne-traction but she absolutely loved it. But im guessing because jamie anderson the ladies choice is gonna stay at around 475 for the board.
She ended up going with the Burton Deja Vu flying V. It is also around 300 Also a good board that she can progress well on. It will be very forgiving and good in Powder/ Okay in ice/ and good in the park or just cruising around.
