Help on buying a board

I live in Australia and I am thinking about buying a snowboard and getting it shipped form America. I was thinking about buying the Nitro Swindle 2010 from evogear, however im not sure if it will be big enough, the biggest size is 148 cm. I am about 5 foot 11, and weigh about 150 pounds, the charts say I should go for a board that is 151-153 cm. Does the size matter thant much, and is the board a good buy? Any help would be apreciated.

I never tried the board but 148 is doable but i wouldn't suggest it...
If youre into freestyle you should indeed look at a 151 - 155 board but if you only occasionaly hit the park you should check 155-160

Sounds a bit short. Remember that your feet get closer the shorter the board making it more unstable. If you can i would go for something bigger. not sure on the baord. whats the damage?
