The only size smaller would be the 149, I think the 151 is just fine. If you ride ONLY park then you could've gone with the 149, but it's not going to make that much difference IMO. I ride a banana and it is even with my neck, nowhere near my chin,. Height has SFA todo with board length, it's more abaout weight and where and how you ride.

As insomniac said, the 149 would've been better, but 2cm is not going to make any noticeable difference.
