Look at the board spec. If they have a weight range, go as small as you can and still fit within the weight range. At 135lb, most 150-152 will fit you just fine.

So many things to say here...
First of all, height plays a bare minimum role in board sizing. The two most important factors are your weight and boot size. Height only comes into the picture if someone is either really tall or short for their weight. Also, there is no end-all be-all size. One board's size 156 could support a different weight range than another even within the same brand.
There is a general range that can be given to you to help you start your search, but I can't do that without the above information.

The right board for you will vary depending on a few factors:
- How much you weigh
- What your boot size is
- The type of riding you want to do
- What you will be riding on
- Price range
These factors are a lot more important than your height.
