A 151 would probably suit you best but you'll be alright with a 153.

I currently have a signal omni 150, I really like the slayblade but don't want to shell out that much money and ending up not a right board for me.

For your size a 153 is pretty big. What is it that you like so much about the Slayblade?

You'll be fine on a 153, more than fine.
