So i saw this on boarders bestbuy.com for $69 and wondered if it would make a good board for my wife. Anybody have any opinions on it.

I think its a perfect board for anybody learning. It is an asymetrical board, meaning it is cut for fast turns on your heal edge and more progressive for your toe side.

Blake, I was talking to my wife about it this A.M. as well. It is a little to big for her, but thought it would be a great board for her to continue her progression. She is ok w2w on her HS, and just started landing w2w on her toe. She is riding a HL Divine 128 right now.

I have a friend who rides the larger one and he loves it. It is very locked in on turns and has pretty good pop.

Sorry to cut in.....i as well am interested in this board...would a 134 fit a 5'9" rider weighing 165-170 lbs or would i need to hold out for a bigger board?

any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

IMO, it is too small for you. It is personal preference on the size rather you go bigger or smaller on the board. based on your specs I would say 136-138 would fit you better.

this amazes me. ronix should be so bummed. if they sold a bunch of blems and seconds to the online shop... then customers should be bummed.

i wish some peeps would buy the last 4 so i can see whats on tap before i go to bed. lol

i demoed it just to see what it was all about. not for me. hs was norm, ts theres something missing, like the entire rail. but i understand the purpose an how it is very forgiving on the ts edge for people learning. 69 bucks what ever give it a try an have a back up teaching board.

It is not just a board for learning. It could be riden by a beginner or an outlaw.
