Board with growing room?

After a little research I have been looking into the 2011 Nitro Swindle for my next board. I'm 5'7 and 15 and weigh 120 lb. and I ride park and occasional freeride stuff.

I really have no clue if I should be looking into the 148 or the 152 considering I should still put on some weight and grow some.

By the way I mostly ride in the east coast so I wouldn't go out to bigger resorts more then three times a year.

Thanks for any help

It's really a tossup. If your family has a tendency to be on the bigger side, go for the 152. If you're probably gonna stay small, the 148 will work. You'll be wanting a new board in 2 to 3 years anyway if that helps.

thanks probably should get the 148. Do you think Nitro is a good, reliable brand?

They've gotten my $$ in the past. Their boards are hit or miss. The Swindle is in fact a hit.
