Default Burton Board Finder: 148 too small? (snowboard size)

Are the recommended sizes from Burton's Board Finder a little small? (burton.com/boardfinder)

For 5' 7" - 149 lb - Boot 9 - Intermediate; All my recommendations are 148. Even if I tweak the terrain/speed/personality/experience knobs: I still get 148.

According to the finder: "For a 5'7", 149 lb. male we recommend a board size of 148 cm"

Comparing to almost every other sizing chart out there—these seem small (or Burton really wants me to be a jib/park rider). The reason I'm surprised is because Burton offers 151 in many of the boards they are recommending at 148.

Thoughts?
