Board Recs for teenage girls
Did a quick search and didn't find anything, so my question is if there is a good board for a teen girl(s) ages 14 and 16 who are beginner/intermediate riders. One rides surf the other skim (of course). They currently ride a Phase 5 skim (scamp I think?). Both around 5'6" and like 115#. Any good "hybrid" boards? Thanks.

Take a look at a 4'4" Chaos Sixer or a 4'2-4'4" Mystix.

My wife is similar size and loves the Hyperlite Hifi. Itís a skim style board but surfs pretty well.

Second the Hi-fi, it's a lose board but the teens girls we take out all prefer it over the surf style boards

The skims are easier for ladies and beginners to "step down" when they are learning to get up. On my boat, they prefer them over the surf style for that reason and also cause the skims are less buoyant so not quite as fast (least mine isn't, I know there are some that are), it makes it easier for them to learn to ride and stay in the sweet spot without shooting toward the platform. Doesn't make me as nervous that they may crash into the back of my boat either.
