Default Recommended snowboard size, smaller or bigger?

I am 5'6", ~125lbs, size 9 boots, male.

Sizing chart that I found recommends a 149cm board.

Should I be dead set on finding a board between 148-150? Because I have been looking on sites to find a used one for sale and they are more scarce than say a 155cm board.

Would a 155cm board be too long for me?

I will be riding all mountain. The main reason I am asking is because I found a Burton Elite 155cm that I will buy if 155cm won't be too big. But I don't want to buy something that I will regret if the smaller size will be better.

Thanks for the input!
