Help buying a board

I've only been snowboarding about 4 times and my friend that was teaching me was a beginner as well, so I am very very new to this sport. I'm trying to buy a board for this winter for up in Northern New Hampshire but I need help figuring out the size I should get. I'm about 5'7" tall. I've been told that I should buy a short board cause it will be easier for me to learn out to turn and things such as that. What size board would be good for me to buy??

I would agree with you and say a shorter board would be better, I would try something around a 154-156.
