Default Almost at boards weight capacity...

I have a Crail 153 i bought and haven't used yet. Its been covered in stickers and detuned already, but I am 160 lbs and am approaching the 170 limit. Should I sell this board already or can this be good for a year or two? I got this over the Custom because the snowboard shop guy convinced me this was better deal and I got my bindings in the same day (looking back I see I made the wrong choice listening to them). I want to start in the park and am afraid that it may break- is this going to be a concern?

You'll be over the weight limit when it snaps in half! I am sure it's fine. I am 6', 180 and I have rode quite a few "Small" boards and have never had a problem!

don't worry about it. they aren't weight limits, they are recommended weight ranges. if you are withint he range the board flex should feel as it was intended, but the whole thing is kind of dumb since most boards list a weight range of up to and over 50 pounds. i am over the weight range on most boards i ride (i'm 210) and don't have any issues. its not like the board will blow up or anything.

This misconception that you have to ride a certain sized board cause of weight and height is just dogshit. No that being said if you ride park and groomers, that smaller is better. If you ride Powder that bigger is better. I dont ride powder cause I live on the east coast so I ride smaller 152-155, I'm also 200lbs. I also have a friend who ride's a 155 and he's pushing 230+ and rips the entire mountain. Hell if weight and board length was such an issue they would'nt make mini's for adults. It will all depend on the stiffness of the board.
