A 150 is fine for learning and also is a good light wind board. As
you get better and start getting bigger jumps and spins you may find
it heavy and want a smaller one. Also, it is too big for higher wind
conditions like over 20 knots. So you will want a smaller board
eventually. Most boards these days are 125 to 140 for experienced
riders in good wind.
