A freestyle board for you according to online sources would be around...151 but you should really depend on the feel of the board you could probably do anywhere btn 149-153. Generally wide boards are for sz 12 and up afaik...but I think a normal width should be okay considering you aren't going to be doing all terrain.

dont quote me on this though, just from what I've heard. hth

that waist width is a touch small for freestyle and its not a bad idea to go wider for freestyle, but your length is way too much in my opinion...
