Rome Reverb Rocker 151 or 154 for my specs?

Height: 5'9"
Weight:140-145lbs (i know super skinny)
Boot size: 9.

I'm considering picking up last year's 2012/2013 Rome Reverb Rocker but can't decide which size to get, 151 or 154. The weight specs on last year's board are a little different than this year. For last year, the weight specs are:

151 cm: 125-185 lbs
154 cm: 150-215+ lbs

Honestly this seems a little off to me, the 2014 weight specs seems more in line with what i'm use to seeing but that's what the 2013 specs say.

Going by my weight I should opt for the 151 but i'm worried it will be too short. I know length is a personal preference but even then i would imagine it has it's limits.

My current board is a 2010 or 2011, 156 Rome Mod (full camber). All my past boards have been full camber but i wanted to try something more fun/playful. I'm mainly a all-mountain/groomer freestyle rider, like to hit the smaller jumps/kickers, ride switch, pop 180's...easy basic stuff. I don't do rails, boxes, halfpipe or large kickers. Oh, and i'm on the West Cost and ride in Tahoe.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
