Mens board vs Womens boards

I've been riding for a while, but my fiancee wants to start this year which is awesome because that means more days I get to hit the hill. She's probably going to use one of my smaller setups and rent a pair of boots until we figure she can actually stick with it, then we'll see what we can find for her own equipment. My question is, she's 6'2" (I'm 6'6") and most "womens" boards aren't big enough to accomodate her, so do they make any boards for taller women or are they few and far between as in non-existent? Not that it totally matters (to me at least) but she would probably want a, umm, most visually pleasing board geared towards girls, rather than the graphics on a lot of mens boards.

Look into soft men's boards.

Size based on weight, not height.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

Do it the other way around....buy the boots...really good fitting and comfortable, get her lessons with a good instructor and rent the board. If her feet are happy she will more likely stay with it vs if her feet are in pain...slipping around, gets "black toe" and she is bruised and swollen from falling she might not stay with it or with you. Dood...Lessons...Dood, if you value your relationship and you say she is your fiance...LESSONS!!! Then if she stays with it....get a board; pay attention to weight range, width to fit her feet, and medium/soft flex...and don't forget a helmet. maybe an atomic hatchet
