Default critique my new setup

Me: 6'3" , 210lb , 13-14 size boot.

Recently picked up a Burton Custom Wide (172) w/ Cartel Binding. Got a decent deal on things, $550 for the setup.

This is my first new setup and am excited to get out and give it try. One thing on my mind is if I got the length of the board correct. My co-worker, who has been boarding and instructing for some time, had recommended that I get the 172 so that my skills won't out "grow" the board. From what I have read on forums, it seems that most folks would put me more into the 167. I pretty much do all mountain, but would like to do a little park riding in the future. Is the 172 the board for me?
