Default Snowboard length/width affects ride

Can someone explain what a longer affects the ride? Say the manufacturer recommends 150-155 for my size, how do I make a choice of 150 or 155 base on my riding style? Same question for a wide board? What does that affect the ride versus a regular width board?

wide board if your feet are 11 up

boards flex different, thats why there are different suggestions
