I'm 5'4 as well, 125 with a size 8 boot. I ride a between a 148-150 depending on which board I'm on. In my opinion (I'm no authority), I would stay away from the Feelgood ES until/unless you are completely comfortable on the mountain. It's a rather stiff board and is not the best choice for a newb. I ride an ES now and while a great board, if I learned on it, I probably would have gotten super frustrated. Being that it's stiff, it's not very forgiving, so take that into consideration. You might consider a Feelgood/Feelgood V-rocker instead. While I have no allegiance to Burton (I also have a NS and Lib Tech), the Feelgood is a good choice if you're just starting out. The Salomon Lotus is a true beginners board, soft and forgiving, only thing, you don't want to grow out of your board too quickly. GOOD LUCK!
