oh ok, then can l just ask you a simple question cuz l dont want to make a new thread about it

for the ride antic, should l downsize to 151 or stay at 154. l'm like 155lb and 151cm is for up to 150lb my concerns are as the following:

1-only the 156 board bag is cheap right now and l dont usually take off my binding
2-starting to do some park riding

its probably better if you make a thread about it dude :) Id feel a bit of an ass answering a dudes thread hijacking in a space that im trying to specifically keep for women... plus im slightly trollied and playing rift :p

Still heres an attempt at an answer:

The science is still the same - if you donwsize you lose stability, you lose pop, and in turn you gain a bit more manoeuvrability and twisty turny spinny roundy feelings as well as make the board feel a teensy bit softer. You pays your money and takes your chance :) Its a decision you need to make for yourself based on what you want to do.

This is pretty much amazing, it took a couple passes to get thought it but I respect your willingness to be thorough and having the tenacity to take it on. 

Wheres the five star button!?

Oh, small typo in the beginning:
And it is this: 
if my recommended size is 146-156, why shouldn’t I just get on a man’s board and double or even treble my options out there? 

Thank you!

thanks dude, ive been editing it on the fly today and took out a stack of tangents (though left some other ones in because a board guide without at least 40 superfluous tangents is no board guide i want to put my name to!). I assume you want me to write triple then? :) I'd like to argue, but i failed english at high school, so i'll take your word for it and not run to my default BRITISH ENGLISH!!! excuse that i give to my korean co-teachers every time they ask me a question :)

The Brits have it all wrong, triple is certainly the better alternative. Wink

Failed English and still writing the longest posts on the forum!? Are we your surrogate professors now? I gotta ask, do you max out on characters or just feel the need to split it up (aside from when necessary)?

hehe, alas there is no maximum.I could go on for months. I actually put this guide into MSword and realised it was just shy of 10,000 words :)
And as for technique, well I throw out needless paragraphing all the time. In truth i'm a firm believer that a paragraph needs at least three solid points contained by one big point and maybe some form of run on sentence just to throw spanners in the works for the reader, but you try telling the kids that :) WALLOFTEXT!!CritsforOMGwtf!!! So i make some concessions to sanity. But only a few. If i had my way this thing would look like the unnamable by Beckett :p I'll also add a few headings just because i know they're a gigantic tangent (the subheading on flex and comparatively speaking pop to mind), but i cant find a less subtle way of crowbarring them in... whilst at the same time i dont want to leave them out because its nevertheless needs to be mentioned. In a sense then, if i could, i'd muck around with paragraphing because it really lets you know which people are too lazy to follow a sentence or simple thought... but then again if i was a true adherent to this type of grammar subversion id probably do away with all punctuation as well leaving the reader to work out the syntax luckily i did pass english at the second stepactuallynowirealiseitspacingisabitofaconcessiontoyourreaderaswell. :)

Just mucking about :p i know my writing is the biggest barrier to me communicating an idea. So i make some break ups in the text as a means of saying "are you still with me?" rather than the more conventional "is this structurally sound?" :)

Shameless bump here - Great summary. My brother and his girlfriend are learning how to board this coming season and want to buy. This came in very useful tonight trying to explain to them why my brother with size 13 feet and his girlfriend shouldn't use the same board.

Such a great thread.  Finally, a guide for women!  

I recommend the Gnu B Pro as an amazing board!!!  It's consistently the Good Wood Winner for women's boards and is filled with all the Mervyn tech.

This is AMAZING!!!! Clap
Thank you for putting so much time and effort into writing this.  Luckily with snowboarding, I've been using women's specific gear since the inception.  I had to find a boot that was shorter (because women's calves start out lower than mens), a women's board (I did enjoy the graphics as well as the narrower waist Wink), and women's specific clothing. 
The only issue that I've had with any of the above has been women's specific snowboarding/winter clothing is that it's made more fashionable (from what I've tried) than practical.  Although I like the look of low rise pants and short jackets, I loathe snow in between those areas.  I still haven't found a combo that I enjoy, that keeps me warm without sweating... that is comfortable without dragging the pants on the ground... being attractive and practical... I know, so much to ask.
 
I would also like to put it this way... For all those women out there that buy women's clothing for day to day life because it just looks better (better cut and fit), this is the same thing.
 
Thanks again for the post IP.  I will definitely come back to this thread whenever I decide to buy gear!!!StarStarStarStarStar

I have ridden close to a hundred boards. 20% being women's. I have a size 10 foot so the width of the board is not effecting the boards I have ridden - if the had, I used elevators. With that being said, women's boards are narrower and have more flex. The narrowness makes it easier to control the board. More flex makes tricks easier to pull off.
With all that being said, I left reviews of female boards. This upset people and they tarted calling me homosexual and mentally challenged Plus all my reviews were spammed and now I can't earn points. I tried explaining the simple physics of the board being narrower makes it perfect for a beginner. But I was bashed and labeled a homosexual

I have bought about $2200 worth of gear - hence my hi points and they ban me for leaving reviews on female boards I bought from them. They should've banned me from buying female boards and bindings :).

I finally found my true love - the custom flying v with squeezebox - a late release with next years technology. I feel like I'm cheating - that's how sweet this board is. Paired up with cartels. Driver x boots and all new clothing - it's 85 degrees out and I can't wait for it to snow!!!

Yes. The whole point of that was to let newby's who don't have a lot of money should try women's boards. They're cheaper (especially used ones) and easier to learn on.
I found my true love - a 158 custom flying v with squeezebox and cartels.
That's for good condition days.
For bad conditions I have my burton troop 146 and escapade bindings.
Save money on a nug and get some elevators and a tiny board. I've been riding 146 boards for ten years (as my crappy conditions board)
I'm 6"5'

cant really help you on bindings, but have a look at section 2 (types of deck) for some ideas. I really like the LOOK (what else can i say?) of the lofi and lofi rocker. I also think the fling sounds like a nice mellow fun board, and zoe <3 the smf. Finally theres always the vspot, (but id definitely run the graphics/name past her first - it seems to er, divide opinion a bit. :)

Oh, and just checked out shay and her top pick for a nice soft easy going ride (i mean er, park) was the endevour boyfriend. Her binding pick was the k2 auto agogo. 

Of course these are just ideas for further research on YOUR part (or better yet, your gf's part :)).

as with the other one i figured if youre after an alpine board then you likely know way more than this guides going to help you with :) 

If youre all about racing and dont want an alpine board, then likely youre going to want a nice directional stiff deck with a nice quick base. Of course im basing that on no knowledge of racing at all, and just extrapolating from my own experience of shooting down a hill as fast as i can go :p

The fortress looks like its built for the kind of thing of course, but it does come with a pretty hefty price tag :)

Are there any women out there that can give a specific suggestion for a board for a beginner?  My husband is a snowboarding fanatic and I keep telling myself that my first time on a board (which ended in a concussion) shouldn't be my last.  I like your guide but I'd like someone to tell me--hey get *this* board.

Thanks


post this question as a new topic and we'll help you from there.  height, weight, boot size, other preference, etc.
Did you google it?
