No, but it's a bit too small for your weight. The smaller the board, the softer it is, so it will feel like a noodle.

I'm 5'7, 110lbs and I ride a 146 and 149. For you, I would agree on the 152 being better.

What are you planning on using the board for? If purely for park, then the 149 shouldn't be a big deal. If you plan on freeriding it, get the 152 like everyone has stated.
