Nah, the plumbing is pretty straight forward. It's the electrical that can be confusing.
Classic!

Its really pretty simple. Guys are always wrong. Even when we admit we're wrong and apologize we are still wrong for doing that....they'd prefer an admirable explanation.

So - whichever board you choose will be wrong and if you let her choose you will still be wrong for not knowing which board is right because her choice won't be quite right either.

Women are simple :remybussi:

Your board will not know if you are a girl or a boy...it will not know if you are tall or short..it will only respond to how much presuure you are applying to it and that will correspond to your weight and riding ability..pick a board middle of the road till you figure it out..i crack up evertime i go to a snowboard shop and they are measuring the board to their chin..

Good one🤙 Except men never ever leave the red zone, just something in your hormones won't let that happen. So pray your girl has learned to rise so far above it, she's practically conquered the Himalayans

I vote for board length being proportional to (non-gendered) human height, and board width being proportional to weight.

I was just talking to a very light girl about wake boarding, and she was telling me how much of a difference the right board makes. She couldn't get an edge on a normal board.

So tall, lightweight person: longer, narrower board.

Shorter, heavier person: shorter, wider board.
Good post.

As an instructor with over a 100 souls, of all shapes and sizes, consigned to the wind gods, my formula is as follows:

Weight is relevant to the size of the area of the bottom of the board, eg, a heavier rider needs a larger planing surface. So 145x44 is a large surface area of 6,480 square cm.

Length is more relevant to height as taller riders will need more width for their stance and can manipulate a board farther out. Shorter riders need a shorter board. This is televant to both body dragging with the board and actual riding.

A short fat rider would need more like a 140x44.

So for a tall skinny rider I would use a longer slender board for long term use. For begginer lessons, a 145x44 with a smaller kite will be easy for her to stand on.

Surface area matters most followed by length followed by rail length and rocker.

Gender really does not matter except for harness.

Saying that "men never leave the red zone" is fatuous.
