Skier here, bought a board for girlfriend: too short?

I just bought a Roxy Silhouette board at 140cm in length (what the person at the place said was correct for her size wise). She is 5'2", about 115, average size feet. Is this board too small?

Sound like it'll do the trick. If she is going to do alot of park riding, she could go the next size shorter.

At her weight, a 140 is going to work well in the park. I wouldn't recommend going any shorter though.

better to go small until she likes the powder
