How old are you?

If you're still going to grow some I'd definitely go with the 152.

Wait, you grew three quarters of an inch in a week??!!!

Keep in mind that you won't be using this board for another 6 months or so. 152 may be a little long for a park board now, but it will probably be a good fit in a few months. I would lean toward the 152, although a 149 could work too. It depends on one unknown: how much you'll grow in the next few years. You may not get much taller, but you will definitely fill out and get heavier.

Since you are mainly riding park the 149 will be perfect for you.
