bpow Thanks Thom.
Already ordered a myriad so will see how she likes it. I definately agree with you though, sounds like the ez rock would make a fun easy ride. It was the other tech like the carbon shooters, sintered base and i found a great price that helped my decision. Im hoping the popcam camber it comes with will be an easier ride than her current camber board.

Thom I'm in a similar situation, I'm thinking of surprising my g/f with a new board for her birthday.

I don't have any first hand experience with Flow boards, but I'm very much into hybrid camber profiles.

I would think that a noob (like my girl), or anyone who isn't too strong, would benefit from the easy turn initiation you get from reverse camber underfoot. The tip/tail contact points should give the extra control and stability that a true rocker board lacks.

So for a soft playfull ride that'll still work great on groomers and pow, I'd go with either the Velvet or Venus.

I know you didn't ask, so if you can't find these for the same or less money than those flows, disregard...But otherwhise you might want to check the Salomon Gypsy and Forum the Spinster, theyt should have sililar tech/profiles if I'm not mistaking.

I did also see a elation for sale on ebay but noticed it was stiffer than the jewel or myriad so was unsure. Her last board was a 152 so definately going shorter but dont wont her to give up to much stability or float in the pow. thinkind 144 to 148 range?
Thanks for your help.
115 and size 8 is a great match for the 148 in this deck. The relatively short contact length (due to a longer freeride nose and tail) mean that you would ride this deck on the longer size of your range.

Alex B My girlfriend has the Flow Elation, (think it's the '10-'11 model), and loves it, dunno which current model it compares to though, has 'pop cam' I think. She's intermediate and all mountain rider.

My wife is 115, foot size 8 and really digs the Myriad 148. The board is not stiff in an old school sense. The Basalt inserts siiffen the deck where foot pressure can create grip and drive but leaves the tip and tail soft and user friendly.

What sizes is her foot?

STOKED!

Nivek Velvet at the least but look for a Jewel. Some carbon in the tips stiffening them up makes for better edge hold. Its basically the womens Era which I could make my only board for everything.
