tiny boat?

my ladyfriend is 4'11" and about 115lbs.

it seems like she will have at least some trouble finding a suitable boat.

any suggestions?

Start by finding a ladyfriend out of middleschool....

sorry couldn't resist. welcome to the buzz and what type of water. playboating, flat water, big water? more than likely you;ll have to shim the hell out of it no matter what. 4'11'' is short. maybe go with older kingpin 5.9 or gforce 5.9 if you can find one. the gforces good little boats if you want to do some surfing.

yeah, i think for now she wants mostly just to run, but will probably want to play eventually .

really, just any boat that isn't crap and she can fit into would be ideal.

gforce. cheap, not crap and good. shes small enough she could run some good stuff in if she's comfortable and play a little. or pocket rocket by liquid logic is another good ol boat.
or wavesport evo if you can find one. they were the specially designed women boat a little longer and still surfable.

Wavesport Diesel 60 for all around, Fuse 48 for river play, Liquidlogic biscuit 45 for play. Agree with everyone else. She'll just have to shim any boat to make it fit.

Jackson Fun1 for low water play- she will be big and heavy for it, no shimming.
Jackson Fun 1 1/2 for river running. Again no shimming. I have a 10 year old daughter in the 1 and a wife in the 1 1/2. Daughter is 60 lbs and wife is 118. Loook at the JK page for full information. Trebor
