    Shay, buying my gf a board this season and she fell in love riding my 152 Skate Banana. It’s a bit long for her and squirrely for me to hand it down to her. Looking at C2 with BTX, but unsure about size for her. She’s 5’7″ and 125lbs. Looking at the Ollie Pop in a 145 or 148. What you think? I”m sure they’re going to float and ride bigger than with the BTX, but not sure about size….thanks!

      Hi Mike! Awesome on buying your gf a new board. C2 will definitely be less squirrely and a lot more stable than the freestyle banana. Ollie Pop is a great choice, good all around board that she’ll grow with. I would get the 148cm for her since it suits her weight best for sizing. The 145cm is on the small size for her weight but would be easy to learn on since it would be so much smaller.
