Default Lib Tech TRS BTX Snowboard 2010

Hi, I'm a girl and i'm planning on going snowboarding soon and wanted to get my own snowboard this time around. I'm not exactly sure if the lib tech trs 2010 would work for me, please help. The smallest size they have is 148 and i'm 116 lbs at 5'2", would this board choice be a problem? if it is what other board would be best for me within the lib tech family?

148 is probably too long for you.. it's probably ok if you're only gonna do freeriding, but if you're just starting off i'd still say it's a bit too long. why are you looking just at lib-tech? i'm not aware of any girl specific boards they do, but gnu and libtech are both under mervin so you might want to check out those

Since you're starting out, and based on your weight/height, I'd say you should look in the range of 141-146. Shorter will be easier to maneuver and initiate turns. My girl is just an inch taller than you and similar weight, and I put her on a 145.

I'd suggest looking into Gnu, Roxy, Never Summer, Arbor, and Bataleon. They all have some great women's specific boards with cool graphics too.
