Need Help Picking Board out ASAP

Please respond ASAP because I have no idea how long this sale lasts.
Alright, thanks a bunch to legallyillegal to linking me to a site for goggles. They have some sort of 50%-70% off sale, and I wasn't planning on buying a new board but hey you can't go wrong for these prices. Plus free shipping on everything which is amazing since it costs a bundle to ship a board.
Anyway background on me I'm 5'3 and 18 which yes sucks because I get all the boards with the kiddie logo's.
I want to buy a new board and bindings from this site, I want to get into ramps and rails etc. so this board will be a freestyle setup.
Keep in mind I'm 5'3 tall and my current 145cm board is just below my nose w/o boots.
They have the Forum Recon 146cm for $150

or
The Burton LTR-L 134cm for $130 (Would 134 be too small? I mean I don't like longer boards I feel like I have less manuervability but is 11cm's too much?)

Now for the bindings I'm not sure which to get, I have size 9 Head boots and my current drake gt bindings I believe are "S/M's"
Would M's be too big?
These are Burton Freestyle Bindings

And I'm not going to bother to get new boots mine are fine for now.
Thanks!

You should be looking at a 140ish board.

Unfortunately, this will severely limit selection as you have a size 9 boot.

Size 9 boots will fit in size M bindings (priority to M/L rather than S/M).

I went against your word and bought the recon 146, I figure it's the same distance away from 140 as the 134 was.
For $200 for bindings and a board I couldn't go wrong anyways.
