go with the 51 if you want a playful board for park riding and ground tricks.
will also work in pow.
i'm 5ft8in and 150 pounds like you. i rode last season a 52 banana and a 54 trs btx. the 54 was a little stiff in my op. got a 51 trs btx this year and its perfect. butterable but also stable a speed. you should size down and got with the 52 banana or the 51 trs. 54 trs will be to stiff to be playfull. sell your 59. its def to long.

boot size US9 should work with the 24,7 width of the 51 and also with the 25,3 of the 54.
i wear size 10 and anle is +15/-10 and the waist of 24,7cm fits well. if you want a stable board but also play around, go with the 51 trs.
I#m from germany and i'm also 5ft8inch and you souldnt take a 157 like the other guy told you... ridin for 10 years now and i rode the 54 trs btx last season, and felt it little stiff. got a 51 trs btx this season and love it. its enough length to hit powder. smooth ehough for some butters and ground tricks and also stable at speed. trust me, it enough length to go fast and big. unless you hit any of these pro line boosters.
