well personally my gf started on an alibi rogue but once she started to link turns and i knew she was serious, we went board shopping and she picked up a never summer pandora. its a board that can help her learn and that she can keep progressing on. its slightly more park oriented (really just softer flex) but she really likes it.
also gnu ad roxy make nice boards for girls

Never Summer Evo 153/Restricted ReFlex Cartel
Gnu Danny Kass 156 BTX

She doesn't "need" a men's board. That recommendation makes me wonder if the shop didn't have anything in the size she would need in a women's board..

Does she want to size down from the 155? At her stats something around a 153 would probably be okay, especially if she's a beginner.

Just watch the waist width with her boot size.

Good luck!

I just got a GNU Pickle and can't say enough nice things about it. I am intermediate, about 5 years into this now and my first board was a Salomon regular camber style. The Pickle is a rocker which makes turning effortless. I matched it with Flow bindings as I hated all the time on my bum strapping in. Its made a huge difference to my time on the slopes - I am now waiting for others instead of the other way around.
