Lady Flex deppends to board model. I have a 147 Burton Feelgood Flying V and is stiffer than my 148 Lib Tech Skate Banana. Of course, last one is more park oriented. But my 147 Burton Lux is stiffer than sk8 banana too. I put my boards in the scale and all weights are similar.
Womens boards allways be narrower than mens boards.

Sorry for my english!!

East§ide yes, womens boards are much,much more flexible than mens as a rule. also, it may just be proportionate to the size of the board, but the waist looks alot narrower also.

What have you girls noticed between the female and mens board? less weight and or more flexible?
If your friend has super small feet, waist width might be an issue when considering a men's board. But yeah, generally the flex pattern is designed a bit differently from what I understand. And widths are narrower in most women's boards.

I can't really give you my personal perspective on going from a men's board to a women's because my men's board is ancient compared to my newer model women's board.

Lady I'm 6'5'' tall and my weight is around 137 lbs and I never ride a board smaller than 147cm. Maybe your friend can use a board between 147-151.

It doesn't matter entirely. I prefer to buy women's specific gear because I'd like to see more female options in the future. Supply/demand.

I can't believe she's on a 139.

Check out your/her local shops and see what they have available in past season leftovers in that price range.
