    Posted: Jan/20/2007 at 9:52am
I'm looking to get a new women's snowboard, I've been riding for about 5 years and really want a good and fast free-ride/all-mountain board. I love big mountain and glade boarding. I don't play around in the park that much. I'm 5'7" and about 130 pounds. Here are the boards i'm thinking about:

K2 duchess 154
never summer infinity 156
GNU b-pro 156
arbor push
Atomic polarity 154

any suggestions/comments/reviews?

I could be wrong - but i'm pretty sure the Feelgood and Feelgood ES are more or less women's specific versions of the Custom/CustomX respectively.
 
If that's the case, i imagine they would be nothing short of a joy to ride. I swear by my customs...
I'm here for the gangbang....

Gosh there are so many good womens boards out there.
 
Here are a few that my friends / myself ride::
 
K2 - Mix - my sister just loves this board....
 
Burton feelgood - gf of mine has been riding this board for six year and really likes it. Really snappy and quick board ...
 
I've been riding the Ride Kashmir this board ROCKS. It is so darn fast and surprising nice on a powder day in the trees...It can hold a mean edge since, I seem to take it the limit...until the dreadful washout...ouch..
 
Arbor Push - is a nice all mountain board, another friend of mine likes it pretty well. The only problem with it is she would like for it to be a little faster. 
 
Good luck !!  How exciting I love getting new boards... Im still dreaming about getting the Burton Malolo....wants and needs...hehehe :)

Things are going great.  Been riding every weekend up in Tahoe. Its been a blast. I just did a Sun/Mon trip to Northstar. Shit I ran into a friend of mine that got his Palmer stolen...up at Northstar...such a bummer...
 
Im pretty surprised at the coverage we still have up there. Its been cold so that has been an advantage. But, heck its better than not having any at all. It been pretty fast days on that mountain to say the least... :)
 
Im enjoying it!!!  But, waiting for a pow day...to ride in them thar tree's. I did get into them the last storm we had. Kinda banged up the new board a bit. But, heck cant stay new forever..
 
We have a bunch of us going up for Super Bowl Party/ Sister Bday Bash. Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon.... Shud be a fun time!!! 
 
Have you been riding much??

hey that sounds awesome. things are good. it finally got cold here in the east and it's starting to snow! i was up at Loon on Sunday with the wife, cruising around, and i have been getting up to either Loon or Killington most weekends.

i'm super excited for a trip to Mt Baker next weekend (long weekend). i'll also be stopping in stratton next week for an overnight to see some friends and check out some gear.

yah i hope i can get to ride some pow at Baker. it's been pretty minimal here. actually this winter, i have more surf days than snow days so far (believe it or not). just the wacky weather here in the east.

oh i also am sick as a dawg. cough cough.

Ah man take care of you!!!  No fun being sick thats for sure. 
 
You will have a fun time at Mt. Baker. Shot its always a fun time when your riding. That sport is such a blast.
 
Im suppose to be going to Whistler with a bunch of guy friends. Im not sure if Im going to make it or not. We will see how it all pans out.
 
Surfing nice job!!  Yeah we had some great winters up in Tahoe we were bound to have a bad one and really I've seen much much worse up there let me tell ya....in our drought years in the mid 70's no snow at all. Its all cycle. The season isnt over yet. So, there is hope.....
 
Have fun take care of you...!!!  :)

Yeah I've been to Whistler a few years back even did some cat-boarding. Now that was a blast. It is the bomb and by far my favorite mountain to ride.
 
The village is so very fun for a little nitelife.. :) ride during that day, party at nite... :)
 
Yeah, with work right now its kinda hard to take off. But, I might be able to pull it off we will see. Im dreaming about about a powder day..shit...
 
I have alot of friends here in Cali that surf at Pacifica, CA... Man that water is cold.
 
Have fun feel better!!  :)
