Default Board for my girlfriend

Took my girlfriend windsurfing for the first time today and we had a blast. We both used my 2000 Starboard Go 190L and a 6.5m2 rig. Even tough it was way too much wind for her with that kind of equipment I think she really liked it.

Now she wants her own board and so I turn to you for advice.
She is 163 cm tall and 58kg. What sort of board, size of board and size of sail would you recommend her?

I'm really excited about her wanting to start windsurfing!

At the same time I'm considering getting some new equipment myself. I'm 193 cm tall and about 90 kg. I have not sailed a whole lot and I'm working on my planing skills right now. What kind of board and what size would you recommend me? I wan't something that I can progress on and enjoy for a while.

I find this forum a great resource for information for windsurfers; so thank you guys for helping clueless guys like myself
