I did a search here and came up with very few if any good results, which is why I'm posing this question

My girlfriend is 5'1. She also loves short boards, even with her height she rides a very small board. She rides park, thus the need for a very short board to whip around.

The hard part is she like boards that are 120cm- 130cm....
However, I do understand the reality of kids boards not being made up to the same kind of quality as an adult board. So I'm wondering if anyone can point us in the right direction as to any boards in that size range. She doesn't mind if it's a guys board or girl board, just that it fits and is flexy and fun.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Erm, board length isn't determined by height, it is determined by weight.

The shortest adult boards you can get are, I think 138-140 cm. I don't know much about kids' boards, but it seems like a rather bad idea for an adult.

My advice is, look for a good park board and get it in the shortest size available, if that's what she wants. For women's boards, that will reliably be around 140cm, maybe a little less.
