NS SL board size?

Sorry I'm sure your sick of this question but here it is again.

Picking up a NS SL next few days and I'm wondering what size would be best for me? 153 or 155?

I'm in MN and mostly just ride the trails but like to get some air every once in a while.

About me:

Approx 5'7"
Boot size: 9 U.S.
Weight: 150lbs

Thanks in advance!!

i would go by your weight more than your height. Weight is important for how the board performs and length is more of a preference to a point. I would use this chart. Never Summer Snowboard Size Chart - 2011 LOL after looking at the chart this link wasnt much help.

Lol yup That's what I seem to keep finding about sizes. I really wanna go with the 153 cause I found one with a blue base.... I just hope it isn't too small. But what's 2cm anyways right? (Crosses fingers)

A 153 sounds about right. I weight 175 at 6 foot and just bought a never summer revolver. Good luck with the new board. I cant wait to get on the hill to try this thing out.

Just wondering don't know if this is significant but do the charts assume weight before gear or after?

I am 165-170 lbs and rock a 155 SL but my hill is just that, a hill, so a smaller board better suits my needs. If I had a larger vertical I would have gone with the 158
