Is my board too big?

I mainly ride park im 5'3 about 140 pounds and i ride a rome graft 151cm. I feel like its too big seeing how kids that are 5'8 ride the same size or similar to it. What do you think? the lower sized graft was 149 but i figured that wouldnt be much of a difference

Its not too big, but you can go smaller. I ride a 151 at 135-140lbs all mountain...so if you are only park you could probably do a 145 or 147ish?

This is a pretty good tool to reference if you need. Not %100 accurate but a good ballpark

For park riding (which is the only style I used this calculator to help me choose my length with) you're going to want to drop about 3cm from whatever this tells you.

That sounds about right. I'm baffled by how short some people size their boards these days.
