I'm not a burton expert but in general Burton has been advocating riding shorter in the past couple of years.

Part of this is that my understanding is that they are putting stiffer cores in boards so that you can ride shorter for same weight in the more recent boards. So your current board could be sized right for your weight from a flex perspective but in the new versions stiffer cores would mean that a shorter board would be the right size in the newer models.
