Default should I get a 155 or 152

I am 5 11 and 163, I am looking at a backup board mainly for park riding. I usually ride a 155, but am looking at the fix. You think I should downsize to the 52 or stay with the 155. I was just wondering if I will notice a huge difference riding a smaller board since I have never ridden anything this small. I have a hero in a 155, but I find it to be not as durable as I would like

I'd suggest staying with the 155 because of your weight, but u could get away with riding a 152. When u downsize, u will defenitly notice a difference. Smaller boards are lighter, easier to flex, easier to spin and twist in the air, and just all around playful. However, a smaller board isn't very good in powder, on steeps, or at high speeds. Instead of downsizing, try buying a more park oriented board.

Seems like a 152 would be a straight up jib board for you. I agree you should stick to 155 if your gonna be hitting some larger kickers.
