lookin for a new board

Im thinkin of upgrading due to my high skill level from a m3 snowboard which cost about 200 to a burton "the hero" my current snowboard is a 152 and is right at the bottom of my chin.
im 5 foot 8 and weigh 120 would a 155 or 152 be better for me?

You determine size based on weight, not height.

Your weight puts you in the mid 140s.

I agree with legally. Those boards are a bit big for park riding. If you're in deep pow they might work fine. Which type of riding do you do?

Also, height does matter to a certain extent, but only if you're really tall and thin or really short and fat.

Well im looking for an all over board. but i do a lot more park riding than anything else. im more of a hit the park all morning and after lunch just ride type of person. lookin to compete in a lot of slopestyle this year too. not sure if i mentioned it earlier but im 5"8" 120. so im guessing that since the 152 i have now goes right to my chin im going to get another 152. plus burtons "the hero" is pretty easy to spin..
