not really, unless it's over your head and you are a very skinny person, you can safely say it's too big
how much do you weigh/ what size is the board?

board size and flex is based on weight more than height

BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA

I'm almost the exact same build as you and ride a 155 "all-mountain" board. It's a bit harder to press, but rides fine. You should be okay if it's an all-mountain board. In the future, you should definitely downsize about 10 - 15 cm for a park board (just a hunch you'll want a park board).

It also depends on what make/model of board because some are flexier than others no matter what length. If its really stiff, you are going to have a tough time throwing it around at 135lbs. But at 15 years old, you'll probably grow into it.

Why is there no going back once you put bindings on? Return policy?

Most board companies have a chart for weight/height for the different sizes.

Maybe because the bindings scratch the surface of the board?
