baxter This is an old thread, I know. But for anyone still looking for a women's beginner board, I thought this might help. I am exactly the same size as aforementioned lady, and I rode a 144 5150 Empress for about ever (3 years). I liked it because it was a directional, (aka: I didn't fall down as much) it was cheap, (so I could spend money on the vast amount of other stuff I needed) and it was SOOO pretty! No really, until you really know what you're doing, there is no reason (in my opinion) to break the bank on a setup that you will a) thrash to pieces or b) outgrow in a year (or in my case, 3 years ) You can learn on just about anything. The board doesn't make the rider, if you ask me. I guess I hope people don't go out an toss a bunch of money at a beginner board just because its the coolest one out there.....

Need Help Picking New Board for the Wife

Everyone here was so great in helping me pick my first board last year ( BIG Thanks to Snowolf), that I thought you could do the same for my wife. She rented & borrowed a friends board last season and is hooked and wants her own set up for 08/09. She is 5'3 130 lbs, wears womens size 6 K2 boots, regular stance and is strictly into cruising down groomed resort runs in Vermont & New Hampshire. I really think she needs a beginner / slight intermediate board since she just started linking turns at the end of the season (pretty sure the board she borrowed was way to stiff for her and she had a hard time initiating turns). I'm a big fan of my Rome Solution 158 and arsenal bindings, but don't know much about their female boards and bindings, so if anybody has any opinions of a good set up for a 40 y.o. new female rider, please let me know. Thanks
