Hey all,

Looking for some help.

My girlfriend is in the market for a board at the moment. Pulling hair out though at the choice.

Budget is about £200 (Are we wasting our time?)

Boot size is a 6.5UK
Weight is 59 Kg

Big question would be, once the weight rating and boot size fit the bill is there a minimum height she shouldn't go below in relation to her height.?

Some that have caught her eye. If anyone had thoughts / advice / opinions on them it would be hugely appreciated.

I am 5'2" and about the same weight with a boot size of 7 and I bought this from AS for £199:

Its a really good value snowboard with a sintered base and a nice flex though not too floppy to make it unstable when charging down pistes. I would recommend it. The ones you posted look pretty good too though and you're certainly not wasting your time. You didn't actually mention your girlfriends height?
