Default Narrow board

Hey all,
Looking for some help finding a board, I'm 5'6, 133lbs and boot size 7.5. The only board I can find is a Skate Banana 148 narrow. So does anyone have any other suggestions? I was even considering a womens board but can't find any that don't look too girly.

I ride women's boards (don't care abt graphics), cause of my size 7 peds and weigh a fair amount more than you. The other thing is stance width on many women's boards are not quite enough. You should be able to ride most women's board that are in the 150-58 range. I've rode a gnu b-nice mtx (no rocker) it was quite fun, demoed roxy envi...not enough stance width, option trinity 158 is one of my main boards, and my next board will likely be an gnu b-pro 155. Iirc atomic hatchet was fairly narrow, and never checked out women's arbor but they might be good.

I ride 7.5 boots. Regular boards have been fine so far. You learn to deal with it. I did read Wiredsport's lamenting about the lack of narrower boards. Not wanting to ride a girls board, I'll wait too see if a company puts out a narrower board to see what all this leverage talk is about. It's weird though even though if I stand on my board barefoot my feet almost are edge to edge even ducked. With boots they stick out quite a bit. With a narrower board I wonder how much overhang I'll have. Or I need thinner boots.

Edit;
TRS slim. Hmmm ...

I'm just sifting through ebay and I spotted a 2010 Capita Indoor Survival regular camber going for a good price. It's a 152 with 243 waist so size is about right. Just wondering it this board would be a bit of a handful for me?, I'd say I'm at the lower level of intermediate rider.
