Default Board too long?


I just bought a Ride DH 159 and after reading some posts online I''m worried that it's too long and thinking I should have got a 157 or a 155.

I've previously boarded for three weeks in total and I''m now doing a season. I'm 6 foot tall, 160lbs and shoe size 10. I'm pretty confident going down the piste and I now want to focus on learning tricks (mainly jumps and switch) and park riding. Is the board too long? Will it be difficult to learn on?

I went to two shops and they both recommended the 159. On the Ride website it recommends either a 157 or a 159 for my height and weight. I'm kicking myself I didn't look into the length more before I bought my board and can't afford to buy another one.

What do you think guys?
