Question Board Sizing...Just not sure

I was thinking of getting a Stepchild JP 147 strictly for park jibbing and park rails. Now I still need to get down the mountain at the end of day and was just wondering if the 147 will be too small and unstable for me at the end of the day to head down the mountain in Whistler.

I currently have a 153 for around riding and a 157 for pow days. I'm about 5'7" and 140lbs....should I consider the 151? Here are the specs of the Stepchild JP:

# Dims: Tip
288.0mm (147), 292.2mm (151), 292.6mm (154), 294.1mm (157)

# Dims: Waist
244.0mm (147), 249.0mm (151), 250.0mm (154), 252.0mm (157)

# Dims: Tail
288.0mm (147), 292.2mm (151), 292.6mm (154), 294.1mm (157)

# Effective Edge
1160mm (147), 1186mm (151), 1190mm (154), 1205mm (157)

# Sidecut Radius
7200mm (147), 7700mm (151), 7900mm (154), 8250mm (157)

# Stance
572mm (147), 584 (151, 154 & 157)

I just saw that the weight limit for the 147 says 90-140 lbs. I'm at the top limit of that range would a 147 still work out well for me. Also the 151 says 115 to 165 lbs.

Thanks for your help.

I'm pretty sure you'll be fine with it.
