The Burton Feather is one of the best boards a Women could use to learn how to ride, as well as progress on. The new core profile called EZ V is a super smooth reverse camber shape to make it easy to shred to mountain. The also added "cruise control" feature lifts up the edges at the contact points to be even more catch free.
The board has a flex of 2. The Feather is soft and maneuverable, this allows you to ride the board instead of the board ridding you. You will not be disappointed with the ride and feel of the this board.
