I would go with a 153 if your riding park. I too am from Ohio and know all about the "mountains" there. I currently live in California but I'm moving back in January. Any who, I would go with a 153, I'm 5"5-5"6 165lbs and I ride a 151 in the park and a 159 for powder days. With the 153, youll be able to get better pop and flex for jibbing and boxes.
