New board for a short girl?

I need a new board. I'm a girl who is 5'1, Weigh 92lbs. Size 6 Boots. I want a flexible board to butter on, but not too flexible. I'm debating on weather or not to get a kid's board. Are there any cons to having a kid board and any suggestions? Thanks

Quality on kids boards is often much lower. Stick with getting a real women's board.

Capita Saturnia for a cambered option. Here is a link to last years in a 140cm and incudes Union Milan bindings for $220
Saturnia | C3-SHOP

If you want a board that is even more playful and is rockered the Capita Space Metal Fantasy is a great option and retails at $360, should be able to find them cheaper as well if you look around.
