I know the board is a little on the small side, but I already ride a 162 k2 board and Its massive for jibbing and throwing down some rotations ... So what are your opinions on a small board this size for my size? I;ll be riding it behind my house on a hill.. mainly powder with homemade jumps , boxes , rails etc ...might try it on the mountain at the local resort , THOUGHTS !! ?
You should be fine board width wise.

Board is obviously on the small side for somebody of your size. I would say too small unless it is a pure jib deck/quiver board - which it sounds like it maybe for you. Don't expect a lot of float in powder though, despite the rocker - just not enough surface area.
