Red face Mervin Boards for small feet (and riders)

I've been lurking on here for a while, but thought I'd finally jump in with a question!

I'm looking for a new board, and because I ride the East Coast exclusively, I'd like to go with Mervin (Gnu, Lib Tech, Roxy..) for their magnetraction.

The problem is that I'm a full-grown adult who is also *tiny*, weighing in at about 100lbs, women's shoe size 6 and standing 4"11. I'm an intermediate level rider who spends most of the time freeriding, but I want to try out the park soon (if the snow holds!). I like the camber in in my current setup so I'd like to go with a C2 BTX this time around....

My choices are either:

Lib Tech T. Ripper
in a 141/135 (I know, it's a "youth" board, but the tech looks pretty much the same as the T. Rice Pro that it's based on. Anyone know differently?) or
Roxy Ollie Pop 141 (is this "too much board"? I'm a bit worried about it being too wide for my boots)

Anyone have thoughts on this?
