Need a board specificaly for my wife. 5'6"- 117lbs, intermediate rider, no inverts(yet) We want a forgiving fun to ride board that will grow with her. Not to aggressive so easy to handle. She rides on my OBrien Player 138 and would like something more manuverable easier to control. Looked at the Gator-Desire, Lexy, OBrien-Vixen, CWB Saphire, Lotus Help please.
Lits pros and cons of boards you list please and rider style ect... TKS

Well I'm a novice rider (not doing any kind of inverts yet either) and I recently changed from the O’Brien rail last year to the CWB Sapphire and all I can say is Get The Sapphire!!!! Best board ever it was so easy to control and once I got it I started to progress a lot faster than before on the other board, much lighter more smoother of a ride too compared to the other one which had a lot more drag and was really heavy.

TKS for input. 1 problem, we don't have any shops in the tristate area that demo boards. As far as the "guys" boards my wife wants a more flexible, forgiving board thats not too aggressive so we are leaning towards the CWB Lotus w/Sage bindings. Talked to a few board shops and the Lotus seems to be a good fit for her. Any other opinions appreciated.

I got the Sage bindings at the boat show this year and I have used them and I love them.. As far as boards dunno there. I am 5' 9 and 155 and use hubbys older Hyperlite Premier DNA 141 I think which is an advanced board but I love it. I am to big to have a pretty girls board. I know I can definatly grow into this board and have much fun. I have my girly bindings on a dudes board and I am just fine with that...

last year i rode the Eden with eden bindings, and it's really amazing. its not too expensive either.
for this year i just got the LF jett with the melissas. it's extremely light and the bindings are the most comfortable things i've ever tried on

i agree with not ruling out men's boards..i started this year on a lf substance's really fast but forces you to learn to control the board..i think it's helping my learning curve!
