Default mayhem 158 is ok for 6'3, 205, 11.5?

I am 6'3 205 with 11'5 boot, beginner - linking turns. I would go on groomers mostly, I like short turns and moderate speed. I can have a good deal for burton mayhem 158. Would this board be ok for me or too short?

Burton mayhem 158 specs are:
# Effective Edge:124.5
# Waist Width:25.3cm
# Tip/Tail Width: 29.94cm
# Sidecut:7.77cm
# Rider Weight: 130-180lbs

I can get 2008 model new for $170.
Being 205lb I am outside Burton's suggested range.
It would be my kind of all mountain but I wouldn't go fast. I am too old for fast .
I may want to learn some tricks down the road.

My 11.5 boots are compact, more like 11 I think.

i have an 11.5 boot and ride a 25.1 waist width and its perfect so dont worry about that. i have a friend thats about your size and he rides a 158 without any problems. if you are just gonna be riding trails you should be fine. you might have balance issues if you start hitting park kickers since you are a little out of the weight range but maybe not.
