Default First Board, what size is good for my weight/height?

I am 5' 6" and weigh somewhere between 130 and 150 lbs...not sure if that is specific enough for my weight, but I do not own a scale >_<

Any idea what is good for me, or should I go find a scale?

what level are you?
what type of riding do you plan on doing?
what size boot do you have?
What models are you look for?

Any profile preference?

I am a beginner who started this season. I plan on just all mountain but some park as I progress, with a good amount of rails. My boot is size 9 and not sure what model board I am going to get yet. Thinking about the Gnu Street (you mighta responded to my other thread the other day).

Hmm, if a board is only available in 149 or 152, would 149 be the better bet, or would the difference just be insignificant?
