My Pandora does this. For the folks that doubt it happens, I'd go try running your hands along the edge of a few NS boards and see. I suspect you'll find it's pretty common. With that said, I never...

The Pandora mentioned above is a bit above your price range but it's what I bought last year and I absolutely adore it. At the time I got it I was a bit more advanced than you, though not much....

Never Summer Pandora comes in a 140. It's not flat/rocker (it's a rocker/camber hybrid) but it's very flexible and easy to control.

I'm 5'6" and 112lbs and picked up the Pandora halfway through...

I kind of felt this way when I was contemplating buying the Pandora but I wasn't a total beginner anyway (I was doing blue and black runs by the time I got it) so I went for it. It was totally worth...

I'll second the Never Summer recommendation. I'm similar is stats to you (5'6", 115lbs, 7.5 foot) and started last season on a low end rocker board. By midseason I was frustrated as hell because all...

Sitting out this season because I'm pregnant. My husband and all my friend's are going out and I'm stuck at home. We're thrilled about the pregnancy but it's still kind of a bummer to miss the whole...

Nice choice. I think she'll be happy with the 146. I'm 5'6" and ~112lbs and was undecided between the two sizes last year. Went with the 146 and haven't had a single time I wished it were shorter.

Thought I would update since I was getting very similar pain to you. My foot pain appears to be pretty much gone now. The two things that changed were 1) I changed from a forward stand (15/6) to a...

Certainly they aren't all the same, but I was on a 2011 Ride Rapture, which would seem to be exactly the type of board the guy at the shop was suggesting he get. If I were riding park I might have...

I started this season with a full rocker board. Had multiple people tell me it was an ideal board to learn on. I was barely able to link turns at the start of the season and figured it would take a...

Input on women's binding selection

This is my first season riding regularly (will probably get in ~25 days or so this year) and I've progressed pretty rapidly from beginner (just linking turns on green runs) to a solid intermediate. I...

Your pain sounds like exactly the same thing I am experiencing. Long cat tracks that force me to spend most of my time toe side absolutely kill me. In all other respects my boots seem to fit great...

Maybe it's just the threads I...

Seems like you already got the replies you needed, but I'll go ahead and add my two cents anyway.

I'm riding relatively cheap boots (Vans Encore BOA) with a single BOA system this year. I've got...
