Will this size board work you think?

I've been snowboarding for a season now and LOVE the sport. Its so much fun! Anyway I'm already tired of renting and want my own stuff. Now I found a board that I seem to like. A DC HKD. I found a inexpensive brand new board for under $400. I hear this is the top of the line DC board. Problem is the only size they have left is a 158W. Now I'm still kinda of a nube but would like to do both freestyle and mountain runs. I think everytime I rented I was given a 162 (not sure if it was wide or not). Anyway I run about an US11 - US 12 depending on the boot. I'm 5'10" and 180-190 lbs. Would this board work you think? Or should I look for something smaller?

I don't think its going to be that big of a deal. but you guys are the experts! What do you think?

Length should be fine.

Width, however, is 26cm in the 158W. This may pose a problem, but it's not it's a 26.5cm wide board.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

A 158 is going to be fine, you could go bigger if you wanted to, depending on your style of riding.

The width of the 158W shouldn't be too much of a problem, since it is only 26cm wide.
