Hi, Im looking to get my wife her first board.

I go to the cable park a lot and occasionally out on the boat.

I have booked lessons for her this weekend and if she can get it this weekend i said id buy her a board of her own.

My problem is i have no idea what board would be suited? I have looked at the Liquid Force 2012 Melissa, and the Angel. Though i think the Angel is an older model board? Does it really matter? im biased towards liquid force as my first board was a liquid force lol. Do pro model boards make a difference compared to entry level beginner boards? id rather her start on a 'slippery' board from the start.

Basically i want something for her that is a smooth ride, and able to hit the kickers and sliders with a smooth landing. also she is 155lbs and just under 5'11''

Thanks in advance and sorry about the long post Smile

I'm sure there will be a bunch of recommendations. My wife rides the LF Jett and likes it. The board design seems very middle of the road so it can provide what she needs to start out and take her through an intermediate riding level.

Just out of curiousity, how tall are you?

Yes a tall woman i know. I am 1cm or 0.4 of an inch shorter then her. so just over 5'10'' for me

What is the difference between a males board and a females board? does it really matter???

Yeah...definitely tall. Nothing wrong with that. I've always loved tall women...was always fond of Elle. My wife is 5'7" and I'm 5'10"...when she wears heels she is usually taller than me.

I've only understood the board differences to be aesthetic.
