Default 156 too tall for 5'5"?

im getting back into snowboarding after a few years off. ive been doing some research and the lib-tech skate banana seems like a pretty sick board. im thinking of going with a 156 for all-round riding. im coming off a few-year old ride kink that i rode mostly park on (it sucked on the mountain). im done with all-park riding and plan on being more diverse this year.

im 5'5" and about 150-160lbs, size 9 boot, age 29, east coast riding. will this board be a good size for me or should i check out the 152?

I think you would be fine with a 156. So far I have riden my 161, my friends 156, a 152 and I really couldn't feel a huge difference. For an all mountain board a 156 would be good.

im 5'8 195lbs size 10 boot and I ride a 155 burton blunt..and im looking to get another board even smaller maybe 154.so maybe 156 might be a little to big which would make it hard to turn 2 yrs ago I rode a 157 and made it hard to turn.
