I actually feel love for this snowboard. I've ridden every single board from burton (that isn't a wide or a kids board) for the last 6 years, and this board has made me a better rider. I'm 5'7" and 125 lbs- and i used to ride a 52-54. I sized down to a 48, and i improved in park riding more this year than i ever have before. I have the 53 for powder days- but seriously, this board has my favorite flex- ICS (infinite channel system) which, now that it is available, it's insane to not use it- such fun pop and shape, and i ride it in park, pipe, powder, rails, everything. I've ridden the SHIT out of this board and it's still THE BEST. If you are an overall really good girl rider- not having this is silly.
