If it was that cheap just ride it and enjoy it. Unless you're planning on taking it through powder, you'll have fun. I was stuck on an old 152 burton staff board for 2 weeks at 210lb. I still had a blast, straight lined groomers, hit medium kickers etc Was it ideal? No. Did I care? Hell no.

manufacturer specs are going to be more useful than the converter. I'd say you're only a little outside the range so enjoy the hell out of the board, should be fine
