Women have been involved in snowboarding since the sport began and finally folks are starting to design gear with the female body in mind. New boards by Burton and Nitro are not only more narrow, but they are shorter and lighter as well. This means they are easier to maneuver because they are appropriately sized. Plus the bindings are now sized for a woman's foot and placed more appropriately for a woman's stance. Even the eye candy graphics have been designed to be more pleasing to the female eye.
Check out Nitro's Nyx board. It has:
a dual digressive sidecut and lots of pop to meet the needs of women who want performance and panache in one plank. The Powerlite poplar core gives you a solid ride, so you can set up for your next trick with confidence, laying to rest your fear of catching an edge off those backcountry kickers.
If you are ready for those features, buy one here.
See you on the mountain.
