Are you a big guy? How big is the vapor you got? You're 31 so I'm going to assume you didn't buy a board so you can grow into it in 3 years haha, so there's a good start. However, if it's on the long side, it may be tough to learn with. The binding are good for beginners so that's a plus, but you're gonna want to swap those out for something more adjustable and more responsive in a year or two. Right now you have crappy 6 inch wide michelin tires on a ferrari. Also, ask any shop to detune your tip and tail. Burtons come real sharp and without a base edge bevel from the factory. This also makes learning more difficult. Overall I think it's possible, enjoy your new setup
