Hi Alban,

A few things. We would all need your foot size to make an informed suggestion. Height is not a factor in board sizing. We would also need to know the make and model of the 151 that you are inquiring about. The tip to tip length of a board means very little. Who a board will fit depends entirely upon the design and rider specs that the board was made for.

^^what he said. and also what type of riding you plan to do. you'll want a longer board for freeriding than if you're mostly riding park.

that's not "awfully small" for your weight...actually, it's about right for a park board. I'm 170 lbs and ride a 155 that I use in the park, on groomers and some side-hit jumps
