I have a womens board... HELP ME
 
I purchased a board last year thinking it was a size 163cm because the sticker on it said that. (I am an idiot/beginner/intermediate rider) But anyways I realized it is a womans board. It is a Burton victorias freedom 53. Its a 153cm board. I am 6 ft tall, 175 lb and wear size 12 boots. Is the board to small for me to ride? Should I burn down the local sports shop that sold it to me?

Thanks for any input

Go back to the local sports shop and explain the issue, if it really has a 163cm sticker on it then they could be cool and swap it out or give you credit towards another board.

I bought it a year ago when the season ended and never got to use it and ripped off the sticker... haha

If you have the recipe and it is never used they would probably give you some store credit towards the right board. Otherwise sell it on this sites classifieds or craigslist and get a new board.

Look at getting a 157ish wide board. The K2 ray gun is a good all around board for new riders

Do you think a 155 cm board would work?

Depends on what kind of riding you want to do... but yes a 155 can be riden at your weight.
