Question Help me choose the right board size???

hi everyone,

im thinking about getting the 2011 RIDE DH snowboard but i dont know what size to get.
i weigh about 160lbs or 73 kilograms and wear size 9 or 26.5/27 size shoes.
the problem is though that im short. i am 5,4 or 166 cm.

this board comes in two sizes.

should i get the size 151 or 153 board??
on the ride size chart i belong in the category of the 153 size board but im afraid that if the board is too long it, it will be hard to do spin tricks and other maneuvers.

i ride park most of the time but i also like going through trees and olliing off side hits on normal trails.

if anyone has recommendations to other boards that arent too expensive, that would also be much appreciated.

thanks in advance.

Go with the 153cm. It'll be a better fit for a longer potential service life. In all actuality though 2cm is goona be fairly unnoticeable...it's just with your weight that extra little bit of lenth might help.
