i would strongly recommend that you get a smaller board, especially if you are a beginner. i am an intermediate-advanced rider who is 140lbs and i ride a 154. if you are a beginner, you should look for a smaller, softer board.

get a 151 or 149, it will last you a long time. 155 will be difficult for you to manage at your size. again sizes are all preference, a 155 would be ok for just cruising and carving bout it would be hard to do anything else

U could do it, but i'd suggest a 151 as the biggest for u right now because big boards are very hard to control if your not very skilled yet.

At 5'3 100 lbs you really need a sub 150 board...at 135ish I can ride a 151 all mountain basically. Like a 147 or 149..

There's no 153, it's either the 151 or 155.

Don't get one that big. I found out that bataleon boards are made big. My 153 Goliath is the same size as all of my other 157 boards.

Doesnt matter they are all too big for you, look for 147-149 boards.
