um...size matters...

Not sure what kind of riding you are doing or where you are doing it, but if you are outside the weight range spec'd for the board than it is probably too small

My guess is that it would be no good for any powder riding and might actually hold you back from progressing as a rider over time...if a board is too small it will mush out...

From another site...

"Your weight is the main factor when determining what size snowboard you should buy, height also comes into it but only to an extent. The other factors which determines the length of board you buy is the type of riding you do ie freestyle, freeriding, powder or a bit of everything and also to a lesser extent the level of riding you are at. As if you are a beginner rider its always better to go for a board on the short side as its easier to control and progress on..."
