Girlfriend needs a new board...suggestions?

So, my girlfriend bought a 152 08 Salomon Lark last year to ride on, and was having tons of trouble with it. Trouble was, I didnt know it was a 152. Shes about 5'3 and only 105 pounds and she was trying to carve on that behemoth, you can see how that's going. Shes got about 300-400 to spend, and shes a newbie as of last season (about 5 rides), what should I be looking at? Im completely ignorant when it comes to girls equipment

My girlfriend rides a 07 Salomon Ivy and absolutely LOOOVES it.

It will be well within your price range, being an older model, but that's one board you may want to check out. I have yet to see a new model within your price range, but look around. It's a great board.

I'd suggest a board about 10cm shorter, 140-142ish.. just look at some last years clearance boards, honestly the womens boards seem to be prolific this year you could get something really nice for that price.
