Is the 152 too small? My shoe size is a 9 but I was wearing a size 10 boot last season.
I agree that 152 is too small for anything but park riding for someone who is 160 lbs I'm 155 lbs and I ride a 154 for park. For all around riding, I would suggest 155-158 freeride board (seriously you should be able to do all the basic tricks on *any* type of a board.

I wouldn't worry too much about trying for the perfect board for you just yet as you said yourself you are still learning to ride and learning what type of riding you like to do. If you find a board that is a good price, post it to this thread and I'm sure people will tell you whether it is good for you or not. I personally would avoid anything the mentioned "street or jibs" in it for now.
