Construction wise? Not really... Although women tend to have smaller feet for the same weight person as a guy, so they tend to be more narrow, and available in shorter sizes.

Nothing wrong with a girl riding a mens board, and a smaller guy riding a womens board.

I believe they also tend to make them a little softer than their male equivalent. Here's Priors comments on the Brandywine, their female version of a freeride board:

"The Brandywine, Priorís high performance, directional freeride board for women, draws a smooth, stable and fast line through all snow conditions. With a narrow waist and softer flex than the Menís Freeride, the Brandywine allows women to drive the board harder and maximize energy transfer for the best ride possible."

Thanks for posting this review! I am looking for a new board and Flow Jewel is one of "candidates" so it's great to read reviews from people who ride it

No problem! I now have 2 full seasons on the board so let me know if you have any questions. I still highly recommend it
