Default Women's beginner board?

Looking to buy a snowboard for my girlfriend, we are planning a trip to Canada at the end of the year for six weeks and she wants to try snowboarding. She has been skiing all her life but has never been on a snowboard. What sort of board would be good to learn on but still be ok when she starts to progress?

Her stats:
165cm, 5'9"
65kg, 145lb

What size board should i get? 153?
I will probably just get a second-hand board for her to learn on so just looking for an idea of which boards will be suitable. Don't want to buy a board which is going to make it too hard for her to learn, but want something which isn't going to get old too soon either.
