Forum Mini Youngblood

Heyhey, I'm wondering how everyone feels about the Forum Mini Youngblood snowboard, is it a good jib board? I came across one @ a local shop today and I'm curious if it'll be a sick board to shred on. It's super flexible with a rating of 3 on the Flex Scale and also twin tip. My only worry is that once out of the park due to its soft flex, carving and general riding will be a disaster. I've been looking for a jib board for a while so I feel like this one may be a possibility. I'm around 130 lbs, female, about 5'4-ish almost 5'5?! Size 8-8.5 boots. Help me out?

if its anything like the regular youngbloods, you'll be buttery on rails and park but its not that much of an all mountain board.

its super flexy though.

What size? Seems like its pretty small and a kids board, you aren't kid size/strength I'd think

if you arent sold on the youngblood and are looking for a good straight jib board you also may want to look into technines midget mafia board. you can get it in a 144, and 147.

Yeah I was lookin' @ the 145, right now I'm riding a 147 Burton but it's WAY TOO stiff. There just isn't that much seletion for girl boards here so when I came across this one I was pretty stoked. It doesn't matter if it's not an all around board I just want to be able to fun with it and get down the regular runs, lolololol. P.S thanks for the tip I'll look into the Mafia.
