If you want a rocker board that can handle ice, check out Arbor's System boards. Their Grip Tech has amazing hold even on ice and it's not catchy.

Does she seriously have a 154 or was that a typo?

I know you said 136-140, but Niche makes a nice women's board called the Minx. It starts at 142, but it's flat camber, very lightweight and a fun...

Can't comment on the other boards you are looking at, but the B-Nice is a great board for what you say you want to do...it butters well and the rocker will help you catch fewer edges. It's also a...
