Quick question: 152 or 155?

Hey guys, about to make my first ever purchase of a snowboard and I know the one I want I'm just not sure which size I should go. This will be my 3rd year snowboarding, I'm 5'4" and weight approx 135 lbs.

Should I go with the 152: Best Prices On Burton Deuce Snowboard 152
or the 155?: Best Prices On Burton Deuce Snowboard 155

thanks guys

You'll need your rider stats/style to get any responses here. post em!

I agree, you'll need your stats/style. I personally would want a longer board, so I would get the 155, but I don't know what you want.

Not sure what you mean by rider stats. I'm not a very good snowboarder and the mountain I go to is on the small side and is very low-key. I occaisionally go into the park but honestly I can't even do a 180. I can just like go off the little jumps they have and hit like a flat box every once in a while.. I mostly just cruise down the hill and do like a bunny hop thing every once in a while. I just like riding down the hills. Also I usually ride on like hard-packed stuff

Well, the "Stats" (thats not what I usually would call them) are what makes the board different. For example, If I was going to be riding park all day, I wouldn't have the same snowboard as the guy that hates to go on parks and only freerides. Since you have your board chosen already, I think this comes less into play. but your height and weight are key. If i was your size and weight, I would probably go with the 152. that might even be a little much. When I was picking my board, this helped me-
Board Finder | Burton Snowboards this can give you an estimate of what size your looking for, but I can't guarantee how accurate it is. good luck.

haha it's no big. So right now I've gotten one person say 152 and one 155. Anyone got a solid argument on this?

honestly you would be fine either way!
i mean the 155 would be better in the long haul cuz it would be more stable at higher speeds but still kinda as a beginenr the 152 is easier to manuevre......someone tell me if I'm wrong on this but thats what I would recommend
