Is this board WAY too big for me.

hey guys i bought a 2008 153 bataleon goliath at the end of last year and when i bought it i knew it was too big but i was hoping to grow into it. Now i am 5'5" and 100 pounds. i ride groomers about 45 percent park 45 percent and 10 percent powder. I know this board is still too big but do you think it is to the point where it significantly affects my riding even when carving?

You will get used to it. You will be fine on groomers but not in the park- but its all relative. If you started out learning on a 153 you wouldn't be saying it is hard to learn on, you would just learn on it (so some extent of course). What size of board did you have before? I think you will be fine regardless, the Goliath is all mountain so it has some forgiveness.

It's big yes but not crazy big you can't learn on it. Not really a park board at that size though.

140 might be a little small.
You could maybe rock a 147.

They have a 151. So if you wait for the summer and become oh say, 5'9 and 140 pounds.
That might work.

If you want the youth version, just look around.
They have a 145. I can't find it though.
