Question Help with Board size and Width

I got my first board for christmas, Its a Ride Manic 164W. However i am not sure if it is slightly too big for me. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

I wear a size UK 11 boot. My barefoot measures at 28cm. I Weigh 177 pounds. And I am 6ft 1 tall.

I measured the board at the inserts and it is also 28CM. Would this board be to wide for me?

The bindings i got for it ( Ride EX ) are XL, Would you recommend i went with a large? I Havnt ever set a board up before so i am unsure what angle i will have the bindings. I havn't bought boots yet.

The boards i normally rent are size 160.. So i dont know whether this board would be too big for me.

I mainly just ride groomers/terrain and powder on the mountain however i do use the park occasionally.

Also i cant try the board to see if its ok because if it turns out to be too big then i can't return it for a smaller size.

If anyone could help that would be awesome
