If you're looking to ride a stiffy that's still lightweight and responsive, hop on the Burton Feelgood ES Snowboard.
With the Women's Feelgood ES Snowboard, Burton delivers a super light, stiff all-mountain ride for the most-demanding riders. Burton combined the trusted Dragonfly Core with the Vaporskin topsheet to create incredible strength-to-weight ratio. Together with a profiled tip and tail, this gives you powerful pop with a low swing weight. The ultralight Carbon I-Beam and Multizone EGD construction gives the Feelgood ES longitudinal snap and enhanced control, allowing you to hold carves on groomers and drop into the park. The directional Feelgood ES Snowboard's sintered WFO Vision base gives you a fast ride as you point down steep chutes. NOTE: We have no control over which color base you receive. It's up to Lady Luck—good thing she's a benevolent wench. *Available for US Shipment Only. **DISCONTINUED**

Love It...Even if it IS a Burton
Thought I'd break it in a jiffy, since the Feelgood ES (145) is like a wet noodle, but this board turns in the trees like a toothpick. Super light and flexible, all around a great board. My only gripe is that it has a good bit of chatter on solid surfaces. Unfortunately I'm in the Northeast where everything seems to be rock hard, so this board sees a lot of chatter.

I have been riding for 4 seasons. Mostly powder and hard packed mountain riding. The size of my current board is 141 (yes, I am female, 5' tall just under 110 lbs). I seriously think I should move up to a board. How much difference and what kind of difference will I notice going from my current board up to a 150? I am looking at the burton Feelgood ES 150
I think that increasing the size of your board by 9cm would be a very drastic difference. Also, you won't weigh enough to really control the board. Remember, hieght makes no difference, just weight. I'm 110 pounds too, and I ride a 143 in the park and a 146 or 147 on groomers or hardpack. I think that if you are looking for a serious powder board i wouldn't go any longer than a 148, and I wouldn't recommend using that for your all-the-time board. If a 141 was sufficient, start by increasing the size slowly. There is no point in making this harder for you.
This board is awesome!
I have an earlier model of this board and it is outstanding! I am short (5') and light, and I rode a Burton Custom before this. It was really slow edge-to-edge, way too stiff, and not very maneuverable. The FeelGood ES is not only narrower, the whole shape is different than the unisex boards, and it makes a huge difference. It's also noticeably lighter. It is extremely responsive and stiff enough to go really fast without chatter (unlike the FeelGood, which I demo'd and found not stiff enough). I've ridden it in all kinds of conditions and it's never let me down...powder, groomers, icy conditions, spring conditions...it's great for everything. Worth every penny!
