Default is 145 too small even for my small frame?

hi! i'm a small male. i'm 5'4" at 140lbs (feet size 8). i currently ride a 147 capita horrorscope but i saw that this year they released a size 145 of the same board.

i was thinking of going down to 145 to think it would help with my rotations and ground tricks? is it worth going down 2 cm? i would have to pay extra. are there any advantages or disadvantages or is this outside my range?

THANKS!!

Upsize. If you can't do ground tricks on a 147 Horror at 140lbs you should stop snowboarding.

I'd say it's probably not worth it to go down to the 145

And if you make yourself seem like you're a good snowboarder on an online forum (when in reality you're actually terrible) you should stop snowboarding.
