What board?

I wouldn't worry about the max weight, that's more of a guideline for the average person not really a rule like "The snowboard will break if you're too fat." FWIW I'm a little heavier than you, riding 156 or 157w in the park, you'll be fine despite the weight recommendation on a 162.

You do want some overhang, generally, otherwise you won't be able to properly pressure the edges/roll in to turns, etc.
