Default Help with size for a women's board

I am looking to buy a new board. I have always rented or borrowed and I have the money to buy now. I've always rode a 149 or a 150. I'm 5'7 135lbs. I saw a really good deal on a forum star that is 152. I love the board but I was worried if the 2cms would make a difference. I always want to get into park stuff this year but I also love to ride. Thanks for your help

Also the board was listed 100 bucks cheaper because it is in demo new condition. Does anyone have experience with buying these boards? I am under the assumption that they are out of the package but have never been used.

Demo means people got to take em up the hill for a fee and try them out, so probably it's been ridden quite a few times, nothing wrong with that however, people usually are careful on demos as you have to pay for damage.

152 at your size should be fine, if not just eat a lot of pizza.

Soudns about right for you, well.. I usually ride a 151-156 @ 150-160 lbs 5'8"

2 cm won't make much diff, only way I'd say certainly go smaller if you're wanting a pure park board.
