Default 161 Palmer Classic too big for 5'7 beginner?

Hi everyone,

I am a complete novice and was given a used 161cm Palmer Classic board with Burton Mission bindings. I am 5'7", 160 lbs, size 10.5 boot. Gonna use the board for slow leisurely riding as I learn to stay upright, link turns, and carve. Will be riding in the mountains around New York & Vermont.

Will the big board be too cumbersome for a beginner? The guy I got it from was about my size, and he rode (and loved) the Palmer for 2 years.

keep or sell?

thats on the longer side but since it was given to you and its used, i would just go ride it and see how you like it. if you end up not liking it you can sell it and pick up something around 155cm
do i know you?
