I'm 4'11", 85 pounds and ride a 144 for PARK. But it works fine, I can spin it and everything

U shouldnt worry about growing into it. Even if u gain a lot of height n weight u should still be able to ride a 151. Like im 5'11'' 165lb and i ride a 152 effectively. But lets say worst case u grow too big, by that time u would probably be able to get a new board anyway

My rossi is a 157 and measures exactly 157
My darkstar is 157 and measures at exactly 156.5
And my Goliath is supposed to be a 153 but it measures at 157

how are you measuring it? are you flattening it out on the curves with a measuring tape? or are you going straight across from tip to tail?

You got shipped a 157 then. I just measured mine. And with the bindings I got 156ish. Take some more measurements of your board and compare to the website.

OP, like everyone else has said. Get the proper size board. Growing into it is usually moms idea of saving money.

You are late to the game. OP is long gone.

Yea I tend to believe the board is a 157. Can't imagine Bataleon messing up by 4cm. And they do use the metric system over there.
