Default Picked up a board last night

As the title reads, I picked up a snowboard last night, and got a really good price on it. I wanted to see if people sometimes liked smaller boards for a bit more agility obviously trading off for stability at higher speeds.

Stats:
My wieght usually varies between 210-215, and I'm 6'2", and use a 12 boot

Board:
Burton Air 161, 24.9cm waist

There is an Air 165 out there, but the price that I picked up the 161 at was way too good (165). Anyway, I've riden a 163 Supermodel and 164 Cruzer Wide, and felt fine on both of them. Going from a 163 to a 161 doesn't seem like much of a difference to me, and the waist of the supermodel is only 5mm wider at 25.4cm versus 24.9 for the Air that I just bought. The bindings are Burton Cartels that I picked up for 65 new (another awesome price).

Aside from being slow in deeper powder, is there anything REALLY wrong with the size board for me?
