Does 1cm make a difference?

Hey everyone I'm new hear and just had a question on length.
I just bought my first board, the K2 Podium 156. Before that I've been riding 155 rentals. I was wondering if there would be a significant difference with that extra centimeter?

Here's my weight/height
height 5'6
weight 160

Definitely not.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

You will more likely notice more of a difference from a stiffer board than the 1 cm.
