She doesn't "need" a men's board. That recommendation makes me wonder if the shop didn't have anything in the size she would need in a women's board..

Does she want to size down from the 155? At her stats something around a 153 would probably be okay, especially if she's a beginner.

Just watch the waist width with her boot size.

Good luck!
