Question about the weight limits on snowbaords?

Hey I have my Burton from H.S. I gained like 30lbs since when I got it (7 years ago). I don't do any intense tricks or anything but I know that it has a weight limit. Do you think I will break it. I have a newer Burton but I am not ready to ride it and I don't want to wreck my other one what should I do!!

It takes a substantial amount of force to actually break a board. But if you gained 30 pounds, the odds are the board is no longer the appropriate size for you. I would switch boards based on that, not on whether the board will snap.
