Unhappy Did I outgrow my board?

So I am 6'4" and weighed about 195 pounds when I bought a never summer proto hd 157 last year and the board was fun, but it felt a little squirrelly at higher speeds.

I've been bulking up since I bought the board, I am at about 215 now and expect to weigh between 225-235 this winter. That's 50-60 pounds over the weight limit provided by the manufacturer. However, as guided by your FAQ, my feet fit the snowboard just fine, which seems to be the main criteria.

So, do I need a new board? I'm an intermediate rider who like to do some of everything: park, groomers, back-country, glades.

Please tell me I don't need a new board already, I really can't afford it right now.
