I ride a Never Summer infinity 156.....I think it would meet your needs quite nicely...haven't ridden their other women's board but I have great love for my infinity.....I ride powder...trees, and small drops...I have also taken my board through the half pipe a few times and it does fine there too.

I had a pair of DC pants 2yrs ago and didn't much care for them....advice...try on a bunch for fit at the local stores and then order them online for a price-break.....my pants brand is Volcom.....

Roxy Toboggan Pant for Leggy Ladies

Ninjasnowchick I'm liking the Roxy Toboggan pant for a relaxed fit, long legged pant. It has low rise but it isn't too exaggerated - feels like a good pair of jeans on and has a great, adjustable fit. The Fera Sophia Pant Long 2010 pant is a good one too. The Long sizes are running VERY long this year and it is a mechanical stretch pant so it has some extra give where you need it.

As for a board Women's boards are not significantly different than mens boards - just shorter and lighter with an easier flex. You have the benefit of having a wider choice of boards. I would look for one with Rocker for that mobility you are looking for. I would consider the Ride Machete because it has the stability you will want to avoid high speed chatter.
