If your boards are like, 145-ish in length, then yeah, you might want a woman's board, but at your weight, you'll be fine on a guys board. I have to ask though, how old are you?

You'll be fine on a guys board, since you're 15 and probably still growing a little. And because you're blessed with slightly smaller feet, don't worry about heel/toe drag, unless you set your angles to (0,0). And that board length I gave you was just an example btw..

Are you dead set on a womens board? If you are, I can recommend some.

I ride a women's board, 2005 Option Trinity 158...women's version of the Vinson, this being due to having size 6.5-7 feet and old enough to not be growing...actually probably shrinking. Anyway, love it and it's very quick edge2edge, only complaint is that I wish it was 160-62 for deeper 14+ inch pow days. However, since ur 15 u'd likely be growing unless ur a midget.
