Would riding a 152 really be that bad?

im really tempted to buy a rome agent in size 152 as thats the only size in stock but the problem is im too small for it.

weight 130 lbs
height 5 ft 6
boot 10(UK) (11Us)

what will happen if i buy this board, i mainly want to use it for park. will i not be able to ollie or not be able to butter etc im worried about the consequences.
does anybody have some other suggestions if getting a board this size is so bad and also where i could get the board(s).?

Usually when you use a board that's too big for you it spontaneously combusts.

But really, that board is way too big for you if you're riding park. How the hell do you have size 11 feet if you're only 5' 6" and 126 lbs?

It won't be that bad... you just may not be able to toss it around in the park like you would something smaller.

EDIT: LOL at vic... he's already gonna have a hard time tossing those big ass feet around!

Go for a smaller board you'll be able to whip it around.

Evogear has some good deals too.

Try a 150 if you're going to gain a lot of weight in the off season.

Are the men in your family tall? If so, I would suspect that there is a major growth spurt some time in your near future. There's a good chance that a 152 will be a good length for you NEXT season, so it may be worth going long now so you can grow into it. Just a thought.
