VaSnowAngel I have a Rome Lo-Fi 147 Camber from last year and I am still in heaven. I have tried a Burton Hero LTD, Burton 7, and a Ride All-mountain board, and nothing compares. It has tons of pop, fun flex, and is buttery smooth even at higher speeds. A definite consideration if I were you!!

What did you end up getting? I had a look at the girlbaord and bataleons boards. Seeing as they are manufactured by Bataleon, are there any real differences besides graphics?

boarderinblack My wife rides with 143 Nidecker Elle. It looks quite soft and having easy turn initiation. But, i m not sure that it suits your park use while having directional and all mountain hybrid shape. On the other hand, i strongly suggest you to use a binding having canted beds if you ride in duck stance. Good for your knees...

timmytard I don't know where abouts you are located, but have you looked on craigslist?
There are some wicked deals to be had.

Here are a few from my area. The key is checking often, because anything awesome & cheap won't last long.
I just picked up an almost brand new Sims board with Sims bindings for free off craigslist, later that afternoon I got a pair of Burton Mission bindings for $10

Rossignol Circus Snowboard 2011 with k2 bindings
Forum snowboard + boots ( women's)

Out of those two the Flow probably has better edge hold. If you kinda mix the way the mens Era and Verve ride here and here you get the way the Jewel will ride, but for the women.

Nivek Well something super responsive is usually harder on the knees. You basically want the balance between responsive and forgiving. Forgiving enough that you don't have to muscle the board around, but responsive enough that your legs don't have to do ALL the work. Also some form of rocker is better on your knees. Bataleon is a maybe as they are easier to roll on edge and whatnot, but they do still require a bit more work than rockers. Fun as all hell though.

Bataleon Feelbetter 149, Nitro Pro Series Maas, the Cadence is a good option but whatever size is below the 151 is probably what I'd go for. At 155 I could ride the 154 Blacklist (chunky brother of the Cadence) everywhere from 6ft pow to street rails, Flow Jewel 149, or If you're into that waiting thing the Signal Vita is optioned with camrock for '13 and I haven't put a girl on one that didn't love it. So a 47 in that.

Also a not, get bindings with some form of canting and good dampening, we can help with that if you like, and for sure get some properly fitted boots and some after market insoles. I don't know if Remind makes a womens size but if they do, check them. One of the best if not the best after market insole for snowboarding.
