Default New Board for the Woman!

Watsup people hope everyone is getting excited for this coming season like me...
Here is my dilemma im shopping around for a board for my girlfriend, she loves the sport and we will be going alot this winter... She is about 5'7 140 and an athletic build. At the end of last season she was just gaining her confidence and just starting to link turns. I want to get her a softer reverse camber board that is a true twin with a centered stance to really get her going. I found a good deal on an 09/10 ride compact but its a 153, it falls in her wieght range but i wasnt sure if that might be too much board for her at this point being that she isnt really agressivly riding yet...at this point she is kind of along for the ride rather than really bossing the board around.
so i was thinking something a little shorter would be easier....
any input would be great either about size...the compact i mentioned or any other boards that seem may be a good fit...THanks everyone
