Help picking out a snowboard size

My cousin is thinking about getting a new boad, he bought a k2 156 but I think it is way to big for him

He is about 5'2 115 pounds tops. Should he go with a smaller board? If so wat size?

What's he riding? A 156 would be great for stuff like pow and stabitlity in freeriding, but will be difficult to manouver in the park.

Hes riding a 156 but it seems way to big for him. He cant seem to stop the board lol. I dont know if he just needs more practice or if he should buy a 145 for this year and save that one for when he is ready for it.

Yeah...I'd bump down to a 147-151ish. But that's just me.
