You basically want to ride the narrowest board that you can get away with without getting too much toe/heel drag: The board is lighter overall, quicker edge to edge, doesn't feel like a tank.
As far as the flex goes: I'm a 230 lb. guy, which is at the top of or over the top of most boards' weight ranges - that doesn't mean that the board is going to break or anything, it will just feel softer to me than it would to someone 30 pounds lighter.
Same here - I am not sure which K2 you've been riding, and whether it's a relatively stiff or soft board in their line, but if you go from a 58 Men's board to a 55 Women's in any brand or even across brands, it is going to feel quite a bit softer/more forgiving.
If that is what you're looking for, I would say go for it!
Should both girls, because the are the same height, ride the same board? No.
A board is manipulated to twist, tilt, pivot, and flex by what the body does. If a rider's body weighs more it will make the board perform differently and affect the structural integrity of the board. That's why boards have weight ranges.
If those 2 girls chose the Burton Feather Snowboard, the 115 lbs. girl would ride a 140cm and the 170 lbs. girl would ride the 152cm.
That's why the length of a snowboard is greatly determined by the riders weight, not height.
Burton makes the Feather in only 140cm, 144cm, 149cm, 152cm, and 155cm sizes. We have Burton Feather Snowboards in 140cm, 144cm, and 149cm sizes available.
The only sizes of the Feather that feature predominantly pink graphics are only available in 140cm and 152cm.
