Packages or blank ideas would be great but was really looking at blanks so she can pick out her own bindings
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated just found these decently priced.
Several good sources have told me there is NO difference between men and women for what board should work for them, so the main difference you'll see with women's boards is graphics. Bindings are a different story as men and women have different shaped feet and lower legs.
My personal favorites for fun boards for beginner to intermediate riders are the Hyperlite State or Ronix Vault. Both are made with slightly accentuated toe side fins to aid newer riders on their weaker toeside riding. Both are easily capable of W2W jumps, basic inverts, etc. if the rider starts professing quickly, but they are not advanced level boards. Both should be very affordable if you are willing to get a 2012 or even 2011 model. For her size a 134 would be great or even a 130.
