Decent Beginner Package
 
Any suggestions for a basic board, bindings, boots combination for a female beginner? What board length should I get for a lady who is 160lb and 5 feet 5 inches? I am thinking of rocker instead of camber and true twin. Any suggestions welcome.

Boots: Depends on what your shop has in stock since she has to try them. Selection for woman's are rather small in shops (my experience... I'm lucky, if I have 3 models to choose from :dizzy:) Take the ones she's most comfortable with.
Im very happy with my K2 Contour, love their double BOA system cause you can adjust the inner and outer boot on the fly. Can't help with boards. For sizes try SnowLifts.com - Snowboard Size Length Calculator

I would rent for a couple times. That way, whatever you get will be AWESOME compared to what you rent!!!

Second the boots. Splurge on that one if necessary. Get her a quality pair.

I would def pick a rocker board because it will be much easier to learn on than compared to a camber board.

Size wise, if it was me, I would get her a 147-151.
