Its a little big for your weight if your going to be riding park, but it is about right.

I'm riding a 154 and I'm 145lb, 5'11". They guys at the shop tried talking me into getting the 152. I probably could have done it if I were planning on riding all park. You might be a hair long, but probably just fine.

i would say its a little big. i ride the 152 and im 5'7'' 170lb. i bought mine small though because i wanted more of a park board but i would say for your weight you could have gone smaller.
