Im riding a 148 www right now. I can tell you that with a 156 it won't flex soft like it would your normal board size. I'm about 5'8" and 135lbs. Other things that may be bad are the weight, and turning, but it will float better in Pow

then will it be fine on jump because of its bigger size and will it be fine on rails?

it's hard to tell cause I haven't ridden any really big boards, but what I can tell from what I have ridden is it effects your ability to turn the board and weight

I think 156 is a fine size for your height and weight for jumps and just riding around, but I think if you're doing a lot of rails you may want something shorter...
Just my $0.02.
