Default is a 152cm compared to 156 big diffrence?

I am buying a new freestyle board. I am 5 feet 8 inch and 135 lb. i found a snowboard that is 152 cm for $180 and i found the same board but its 156 cm and it is $150. i know for me it says that i need a 147, but the smallest size for this board is 152. Which one should i get? I would rather spend the least amount. cant really see how inch and a half can make a huge difference in the board. If i get the 156 would it be harder to do tricks or something? BTW the board is a 09 flow quantum.

Default Size matters

You should buy a 145 or 146. What size snowboard should I ride?

It matters. The better you are, the more it matters.

I think you'd be fine with a 152 honestly. I'm 5' 7" and about 130 lbs and I ride 151. That's a mid-range board for me, not quite freestyle size and note quite freeride size, just in the middle. I think you can pull off a 152, but definitely don't do the 156. It's going to be hard for you to control it as well.

It really depends on what you're doing with it. It will make a much more noticeable difference for 180's and 360's in the park or fast edge-to-edge turns than for relaxed sweeping turns on groomed slopes.

4cm is not a huge difference, but 9 cm (if you're supposed to ride a 147) should be noticeable. If you are still growing, (which I imagine you are) then there aren't any huge problems with a 156 unless you plan to do some of the moves or type of riding that requires more skill
