|DC5R||Yeah, the 150 is the better choice...smaller to throw around and softer for more forgiveness.|

my girl is 5'4" and around 125lbs(asians are petite!) and im in the same quandry dude.
I was gonna go something like a 145cm or 143cm, but IMO its definately better to go with something a little small and lighter for chicks.
If its a bit too big/unwieldy for them then chances are they will just pack it in right away.
Ima pick up a smaller, second hand board for her initially and then if she still likes it after a big season we can look at trying a bigger, new board!
The only thing better than a healthy addiction is a healthy addiction you share with your significant other!

|danielle||I think that is a good choice. I would totally go with the smaller one, get her a board that will work for her so she can love the sport. If you get her something to big and she cannot control it or has issues, you will have a hard time getting her to go with you.|

|danielle||If it is a 150 it could work. I think a 152 would be a tad on the big side for her especially if she is just learning. It also depends on conditions, if she is just going to ride pow a larger board would work. We are about the same size, but I am a tad bit smaller but I ride a 147. Also she is new to the sport, her view of the park might change once she really gets into it. If it is a great deal though Basicly, it could work but depending on conditions and what she wants to do with it.|

Advice on woman's board size
Finally convinced my girl to get a board now that she's starting to link turns and like it more, so she wants a used one and found a Burton Feather 04 model(152cm but the pics look like it's a 50). Now she's 5'4" 140lbs and wears a sizr 8 boot. Would a 152 be too big for her? Oh and I found out she'll never ride park; EVER.
Thanks for the info.
