Something around the 153-157 range should suit you just fine. Although weight is the more important factor, height still matters too.

157 would be WAY too big for someone 120lbs. When I was younger I was a bit shorter 5'7", but around 118lbs and I rode a 147 that was big for me. Usually people under 120lbs should be on 143-145 for freestyle. If you're advanced you could probably got with a 147-150. For all round riding, but mostly in the park I'd stay around 148. I'm 150lbs and I ride a 148 most of the time and don't have a problem going very fast. Use this.. Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator I find it's pretty close to what I would recommend, but always adjust for personal style. I usually shave 1-2cm from my recommendation, you can add about the same and be safe. But given your stats, it's saying 146-148. Try it out

149 - 155 for park at your height/weight. To put things into perspective, I am 5'9"ish and 200lbs and ride a 154 and 155.

For a freestyle board, given your weight, 145 to 150. At the 150 mark, the board may be stiff for you, so you'd have to have some skill if you're looking to butter that puppy. IMO, get something in the 145-147 range and you should be good to go.
