to wide or not to wide

Hello, i'm having quite a problem on my hand.I'm in the possibility to buy me a Nitro suprateam LH 163 2006 very cheap. The problem is that i'm a size 11 and it isn't a wide version of the board. My previous board was a Hammer pulp wide and had a waist-width of 260m, and I never had problems with that. The suprateam has a width of 254mm. Is that going to be a problem? Some people say that the 6 mm is a big difference, others say it isn't. Can anyone give me some advice?
