Buying a board for the Wife.....sizing question

if there are any females on the board i would appreciate the input. Im trying to figure out what size board she needs. listed below are her measurements. I dont really know anything about womens boards and am not close to any store to go and do an eye test. These stupid online calculators seem to give me very different answers. I was thinking a 146, sound right?

5'4"
115pounds
6.5 size shoe in womens.

I would think the 144-148 range is in the ballpark. Depends on the conditions you ride in. My girlfriend is 5'4" 130 with a size 9 and she has a 150 and is happy with it.

144 or 146. I'm 5'7, 112lbs and I ride a 146. Either one should suit her fine I think.

I'd say 142-146 should be your range, depending on her skill level and the width of the board.
