Default Woman Board Size

Guys,
I would like to help my sis in-law with a new setup this year, but have a hard time since I'm clueless about woman's board, style and sizing.

She's 5'1, 135 with a 7boot. This will be her second year. She got injured last year but all repaired now. Need a med flex all mountain free-styled board(size) and med flex binding setup.. We ride 95% eastcoast, groomers, sometime ice and head to CO once a year for a week or so..

I think she got hurt while using a free-ride Arbor Push 148 last year and she would like to go smaller, but don't know how small and how flexible.

I would like to help her in choosing the setup but not familiar with the latest trends.. Any help would be much appreciated.

Stick with that size run for her weight its pretty ideal. There's stuff like rockered technology where the camber of the board is reversed, MTX think a steak knife for a side cut. What are you looking to spend?

Price is cool with her. She just felt like it was too big and hard for her. I was thinking of Rocker as well, but though it maybe too much since she's fairly new, maybe I'm wrong. She was saying she wanted a more flexi around 139-141?

God no she just needs to get a lesson, small boards like that fester bad habits.
Rocker could be a possibility for sure. She should just look at a high end park board instead of these all mountain boards if she finds them too stiff.
