At that size - you should be able to defend yourself with a 1x2. Go with about a 4 footer. I have to use a 4x4. But my bride is 6' tall and we've been married 20 years. So she's got a lot of practice kicking my a$$.

That's about the same size that my daughters are and the guy at the local pro shop recommended between 130cm and 134cm for them. I'm assuming you mean a wakeboard, not a wakesurfer. I have no idea about that. Find a good local pro shop and go check them out. A lot of them will even let her test ride one before buying.

My wife rides a 132 HL syn and is around the same weight. I would say 130 or 132.

Look at 132 to 134, but would recommend a demo.

Thanks again. She feels real comfortable riding her friend's board, but I dont know what size it is and her friend outweighs her by 30lbs and a few inches.

If it's a wide board, closer to 130, if it's on the narrow side, closer to 134. Really though, whatever she's comfortable with. Demo demo demo.

Sorry...but that put tears in my eyes. Best unexpected laugh I've had in a while.

I bought her a garage sale board last year for $50. She has never ridden it. Just measured it and it turns out it is a 132. I will get her up on that and see how she feels.
