It probably has a cheap extruded base. Extruded bases are slower, especially if it's a cheapo board. I was riding a board with an extruded base and recently switched to a higher quality sintered base. I have way more speed now.
I don't think a 140 would be the right size. 140's are for the 100 poundish people, like 100-115. At 70 pounds, she's very light. Something in the 130s would be more appropriate. However this all depends on the models weight specs too. I was riding a 141 at 115 pounds and was right in the weight category for my old board.

My daughter has been boarding for about three years and is not bad. She is 10. My question is her board seems to be quite slow and frustrates her. She is about 70 lbs and her board is a Morrow, not high end. Any thoughts? Is she slow because of her weight or could it be the board. Are small entry level boards slower by design or because of their size? I've waxed her board and it really doesn't seem to help much. Her board is 128 cm. she is about 4ft 7 in.
