You will be just fine riding that length. It should be a decent all mtn length. I'd go shorter if I wanted a jib specific board, and longer if I wanted a haul ass/powder board.

I think it is just a recommendation. You can really ride any board length, but it may or may not ride the way you want it to. Freestyle lengths are usually shorter than the recommended and straight powder riders use longer boards then the recommended.

Yeah I agree with what everyone is saying those charts are just estimates and reccomendaions. Snowboarding is all about personal preference. I think that board will be great for you because it is a versitile board and since your a beginner you might not be sure what you want to do, park or pow. That length is also a very versitile size for your weight
