As a first board there's nothing wrong with downsizing a little. The only thing is you may start to overpower that board sooner than you like. It would probably make a great 1st year board if you're going to get out up to about 25 times.

How well do the boots fit? If they fit well I'd say go for it...

At the end of the season you'll probably be ready to go ape shit and get yourself an intermediate board, brand new boots, etc. but at least you'll have a better idea of what you like and what you don't.

And by the end of the season, the current boards should be 40%+ off...
