Smile Board Length Advice

Hey I am around 115lbs and 5'6. I recently picked up a Gnu Metal Guru 152cm and slapped on a pair of Endeavor S2s (M). My boot size is 8 and have around six years of snowboard experience. On a couple of websites it says that the recommended rider weight should be 130-210lbs. I mainly do park/ freestyle and groomed runs. Normally I ride a Ride Catalyst 149cm but picked up the Guru at a good price. Do you think due to the lack of weight I will have difficulty controlling the board ? It seems like it is harder to switch onto my toeside but that could just be my first day with the board. I am currently riding 15 on the front and negative 6 at the back on a regular stance.

Thanks in advance and any comments would be appreciated.
