You should still be able to throw it around just fine.

I sized up from a 151-153 years ago when I was first learning to spin because I found my self washing out if I was in the back seat at all. Doesn't seem like much but you can definitely feel a difference when riding and jumping.

Spinning wasn't any more difficult. If you're leading with your head you'll be able to spin 2cm more without any issue. It was helpful because when I first started spinning 3s I would cork just a little and end up landing on my tail. This would typically lead to a washout. When I went to a 153 just having a little more tail was great for being able to stomp me back down even if I was a "little in the backseat".

It won't necessarily make you progress quicker because as with most things in life it is predominately the person, not necessarily the gear, buy you will be able to stomp things a little easier. Hopefully this makes sense....
