56 for more all mountain and better float, 53 for more park and jibbing.

CHOOSE!!!!!!!

You'll regret not downsizing. Trust me. I wanted a park stick (I'm the same height and a bit heavier than you) and bought a 156. In retrospect I'm kicking myself for not getting the 152. I'm getting a K2 Weapon Rocker in for this season, and ideally I'd be downsizing all the way to 148.

If your worried about park performance go with the 153.

TO AirConditioning:
I would not ride a 148 weapon rocker at your weight anywhere but on the street. I can jib, spin, butter... anything like that I want on my 152 Sub-Pop and I weigh 140lbs... I highly recommend you go with the 152
