What size board do you have now? I think you should be able to handle the 147 fine if you are muscular and it's a soft flex (but again, I'm biased to longer boards). I'm on a 147 now, and I stay out the park on it - it's purely a freeride board (so it's pretty stiff) - so I'm only going over the occasional natural jump or roller. Could you rent or demo a couple boards with a similar flex at both sizes?
