I realize you posted this months ago, but at that weight and height, I would not recommend anything smaller than a 153. In fact, I am only 10 lbs heavier and 1" taller and I will not even go below a 156. Sure, the smaller boards are super fun, but they are extremely limited in application.
If you do wish to go that small, at least get something with some sort of grip technology like Never Summer's variogrip or Smokin's magnetraction. A radial sidecut will wash out.
Just FYI, 5cm is a huge difference.
As for the size 12 boots, of course they will drag on a small board. If you want a fun board that accommodates your foot size, check out the Never Summer Revolver, Nitro Rook, or Nitro Glory Stomper in 153-154cm.

Sick Park Board!

Zero camber shape is my personal favorite because of the way it locks onto rails and I feel that it's more predictable than other hybrid cambers. The Swindle seems pretty durable so far (no surprise there), but the best thing about this board in my opinion is the Superstache technology/reflex core profile, which in English means they thinned out the core between the inserts and thickened it underfoot. The theory is that it gives you a playful feel, while still giving you insane pop and control on landings or at higher speeds and hell... it works! I couldn't believe the pop on this thing! For a softer board, it also held its own in powder (although definitely not its specialty) when Seven Springs had a couple little stashes in their glades too. If you love rails, boxes, buttering around, and don't frequently hit jumps over 30ft, this board is perfect. If you want a more of a jump board or park board that excels at all mountain though, opt for the Rook, Team Gullwing, or T1. I own the TG and Rook as well

Got the guru-matte color way with the bronze mirrored lens. I haven't actually used them on the slopes yet considering the fact that it's summer here, but I tried them on and all I can say is wow. The peripheral vision in these is incredible. Now I'll be ready if some idiot comes hurling at me from the side. Huge upgrade from my Anon Helixes and the cheaper Scott models I've been using for the past few years (which are OK if you're tight on money). They also come with a low light lens, so you can rock them in any conditions. Went ahead and got an extra bronze/mirrored lens as well because the deal was so good, so I don't need to worry about scratching them up in the Glades. Did I mention they also fit with my helmet very well? I guess this was what I've been missing out on by being poor. Gotta love the summer steal deals! =D

Had an order under $50 and it was either pay $7 for shipping or $7 for these to get my order over $50 and qualify for free shipping, so I went for these. They're sick. The only thing about shoe lace belts is that they typically don't stay tight all day when snowboarding, but I knew that when buying them. The blue ones go great with my bright yellow snow pants.

Sick board.

I own a 159 wide and figured I'd post my review here as well.
I set it up with 2011 Blackhawk bindings. This board is great. Stiffer than my Rook and more of an aggressive ride. I'm about 6'2" 175lbs and riding the 159W (my 2011 Rook is a 154). I feel like this board just begs to go fast and be ridden hard. First time out I was thrown down a couple times because one moment of not paying attention can be disastrous. This is NOT a beginner board. It is responsive and reacts to like every little movement. It is stable for bombing because of the bigger size I got and the gullwing profile allows it to turn with so much ease while still keeping great edgehold. It also has great pop. I haven't gotten enough time on it to really say anything about durability, but i underlfipped a frontflip and the tail hit ice hard and no damage was visible. A beginner also ran into me and hit my board... again, no damage. I've been riding Nitros for years. Every board I've own by them has been amazing and this board is no exception. Not the best rail board, but that's why I have my Rook. Definitely awesome for charging and jumps. I could see it being softer and more all-around in a smaller size as well.

Check out the Nitro Addict or Nitro Prime Colorband. Out of those 2 I'd personally go with the Addict because it's gullwing rocker (catch edges less often = fall less often). Typically I'd recommend Never Summer as well, but they don't really make "novice boards". Just don't make the mistake of getting a Burton. Those aren't as durable, the ride is less fun, and customer service is always busy because EVERYONE rides them for some reason. Note: Forum is also Burton. For bindings look into Raidens or Unions and you'll be set!
