Girl all mountain snowboard

Hello again, regarding a board for a girl with 1.64 meters tall, weight 75kg, and boot size 8.5 US wich board do you recomend? I have been searching and the options at the moment are:
Burton Feather 149
Ride OMG 149
and K2 Bright Lite (but this was litle higher in price and out of budget, only if it really does it worth).
My friend already know the basics but sometimes she still has some dificulties turning on steeper slopes sue to lack of experiency, but she will improve without major problems I have no doubts. So she will need a board that also allow her to improve their skills (a begginer only board is not an option for her).
Best regards

Burton Feather is pure beginner, she's probably outgrown that already.

By the way what should be the best size for an all mountain board for her?
We raise our budget and add some more options
k2 Eco lite 152
Ride baretta 148
Roxy TBird BTX 152
ROXY RADIENCE C2BTX 151.

Please leave your opinions because I don't understand nothing on womens snowboards.
At this moment K2 Eco Lite seems to me the better option due to already has a sintered base and in second place comes the k2 Bright Light I also heard good things about the ride OMG but I read that this is more park oriented board and she will not spend too much time in the park.

In advance I want to thank you by your opinions.

151/152 would be better for her weight of 75kg!!!!!

Even look at somethin like a YES Basic, as there's no set rule that a board has to be "women's" specific?????

It is RCR in profile, but that's a better profile for All Mountain, I reckon!!!!!

I only weigh 77 kg and I ride between 155 and 159 I'd say that you want something in the 154-156 range for an all mountain deck. Jones twin sister would be a good shout comes in a 152 and 155.
