Default women's board

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a new all around board. I'm not looking to spend tons, just enough to get a fun board. Im about 5 feet tall and 110 lbs and about a medium skill level. Anyone happen to be savy about womens boards? Let me know your suggestions I would really appreciate it.
Also, how do yall feel about the single strap bindings?
Thanks yall!

K2's women's boards are specifically designed for women. When i say designed i mean everything about the board was contructed for women's specs from the wood to the shape to the flex.

You're a fucking tool.

Anyways flows in pow not such a good idea bit of a bitch to get the highback up when there's snow forced in them. Thats the biggest downside to them. Also in flows line up don't look at anything in the lower price ranges you want stuff thats at least like 180 and up.

I second the K2 line up the Alliance girls put a lot of work into those boards and they're solid.

My wife took a quick run at the k2 cinch bindings (not flows but same concept) they really weren't as easy and as quick as she hoped they would be and they were slightly heavier as well. went to the rome madisons and loves them. i think this years madisons have a few upgrades from last as well. my wife went with the never summer infinity, but she has this nack for liking something that just so happens to be on the higher end of the cost scale. she got some recommendations for the K2 boards, and the atomic fallen angel, i think also.

sorry to see someone else sharing in our mountainless misery.
