depends on the board and the type of riding... if your looking for an all mountain deck 152 is a little on the small side, I would say somewhere between 153-157.

I'm the same exact size. I ride a 155 and just ordered a 154, and that's as small as I would go. I mean you could go smaller but it basically cheating. I seriously hate the faggots that ride around in the park with a 140 and think there so good. If you get a board to small it's really not even fun either. It just doesn't feel fair.
