Did I just buy board way to small?

I just bought my first board, the guy at the store seemed to know what he was talking about and was telling me how he prefers shorter boards, especially when learning.

So he set me up with a 155. I'm 6"2 and 160lbs. I guess my weight kind of matches up to 155, but am I to tall for this board?

This seems short, because when I rented last time they first gave me a board that was bigger than 160, not sure what it was but probably high 160's... it was way to big to i traded it in for a 160, which still seemed pretty big but a lot easier.

The guy that sold it said it'd be easier to learn and more fun to use, there were the exact same boards but bigger, but he advised i got this size. Thoughts?
