Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a good start to 2020.
I'm planning on building my wife her second board and after looking at the archives I'm questioning what I want to achieve...sooo much to read. She's been riding a budget of a board 8' X 23" X 3" tri fin mini mal and weighs 60kg/135lbs, very fit for a 40 something and has snowboarded with me for ever. I want to keep her stoke going with more progression and go slightly smaller allround. It has to handle waves up to chest high,and keep going in the flats (more a longboard break). Her only musts are a single fin and resin swirl (yeah it's gotta look good). Here's what I have penned so far -
7'7" X 22" X 3" wide point 3" forward, 16.5" nose width 15.5" tail, 3.5 - 4" nose rocker and 2.5" tail with no flat areas. Slight belly up front and vee starting just ahead of fin box...and that's as close to a plan as I have. Do you see any shortfalls in this for what she needs? What's a good rail choice for her?
