hmmm, i will have to check out the companies.
Ya when i bought the boots i had no idea what i was doing (lol its still debatable). i think im gonna sell her whole set up and get her a new one over the summer.

"Waist width" is a bit of a misleading term. Each company measures it differently - some companies measure at the binding inserts and some at the actual waist, so take those numbers with a grain of salt.
Just go a bit softer or a bit shorter and she'll be fine. Oh, and boots that fit are SO important. Read the sticky at the top of the forum about fitting equipment correctly - lots of good info there.

i might be wrong but it looks like the side cuts are not extream either, pretty similar to most other boards.

great sizing chart for footwear regardless of what measurement system you use. It will give you a general size to start shopping in and then you can adjust from there.

|Justin||yes thank you for the advice, i will re-adjust the binding after i get a boot that fits her properly. I originally made sure to messure and center her boots on the board and mounted the bindings based on having her boot centered on the board. She won't ride much more this season so i have time to get her boots and a new board. i will get her boots first. Just want to have board ideas so i can shop for them online.|

Like I said before the OP's wife and I are about the same in foot size and in weight. If you want to post pics of the setup to see if it can be tweaked then I'd be glad to offer my advice. If not, it makes me no difference. I will always offer assistance to new riders and someone with my same specs riding a similar board may benefit from what I have to say. The original questions was "what size boards" and I answered that already.
A boot that is to big will cause more problems than a small foot. My suggestion is this: get the right boots before you tweak anything else. The board isn't to big or to wide, but the boots may be the bane of her riding. I'm betting she'll fit in anything between a 6-7US based on the boot maker.

Ughhh...never mind. I don't know what I was thinking - I'm a 21.5 Mondo, which translates to a size 3.5-4. My apologies.
Regardless, if there is a significant amount of space between your bare foot and the edge of the board, turning ability would be sacrificed. If she is having a hard time on a Ride Compact, which is not a stiff board, she will need to experiment a bit.
