Race board for petite girl?

I want a flat water race/touring board, but the weight recommendations for all of them are pretty high. I am 5'1 and 113 lbs. Any suggestions? I won't be doing any serious racing, but I like to go fast and love to explore.

Thanks!

Kim

Kim I don't think that any of the 12'6 true race boards are going to feel too big for you. I would look for the best deal and go for it otherwise I would wait for 2014 boards because there is a lot of new stuff coming this spring.

Not a 12'6 but this board will feel pretty fast for someone your size and is on sale:

My wife is interested in getting rid of her all carbon starboard ace. She's a wee little thing as well and loves it, but wants something narrower (its 23.5" wide). It hauls ass, she took 3rd in the lake Dillon challenge with my daughter on board with her and second at the cherry creek REI race. Shoot me a pm if you want more on it. I live in Evergreen and could meet you at the lake if you want to paddle it.
