To really get the benefit of the Filet-o-Flex, I think the 55 would be right on for your weight.
The board rips - holds a great edge for a "soft" board. (They altered the angles of the fiberglass on this board to make it soft length-wise, but actually almost 30% stiffer torsionally.)
There is definitely some personal preference in your decision along with what type of boarding you do the most. Burton suggests that you will be on the light end of the 155cm length board, and would be perfect for the 151cm length... even if you grow. It's ideal range is like 120lbs to 165lbs.
I actually think the 148cm length will be too narrow. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider UNLESS the boots have Shrinkage Reduction Technology. The 148 you are looking at has 24.7 width.
You fit on the higher side of the 155cm Burton Name Dropper Snowboard's weight range - the 158cm size would fit you better.
This Burton Name Dropper Snowboard uses the Channel Mounting System, and the 2015 Flow bindings will be compatible to that. The GNU, older Flow, and Head rear entry bindings we offer will not be compatible to this board.
