Question mid wide board question for size 8 boot

i have an older Arbor Wasteland sitting in my garage (been riding my burton Antler) i was wondering if anyone had any insight on how the arbor would ride for me as a mid wide board.

i rode it for 4 times one year and then got new boards and sorta forgot about it. i didnt have any issues with it when i had it but didnt have a chance to compare it to anything back to back.

I ride a medium binding and a size 8 boot. about 5'11" and 160. i am not super technical on board stuff regarding waist width and sidecuts, so hoping someone can chime in.

Is it too wide for me? or is it just slower turn initiations? The burton antler is 249mm so is 10mm a killer.

its a 2011 cambered wasteland, 155 cm
Tip Width: 303mm (155cm),
Waist Width: 259mm (155cm),
Tail Width: 303mm (155cm),
Sidecut Radius: 7.8m (155cm),

I am sure the general consensus is to just go out and ride it

I have limited slope time so thought chatting on the forum might help me set the proper expectations when riding.
