how old are you? Are you still in the growing stage?
What type of riding are you going to be doing?

i think you can get a longer board since you are still growing.
I am 5'7 and 150 lbs and i ride a 157.
I feel a 153 should be ok for you.

146 is a bit small.....as said 149-153 is the zone your looking at..153 for more freeriding, 147-149 for park.
