Is this board too big for me?

Hey everyone, my brother just bought a new board and he gave me his old one. It's a Forum (not sure which model), I'll have to check. It's 157cm, regular width. I'm 5,11', 135-140lbs, size 9 boots. I really don't have money to buy a new board. I don't go up to the mountain too often (maybe 10-15 days a year?). Is this going to be okay for me? I ride groomers but I want to eventually do some park. Thanks!

It's on the bigger side and the type of board it is will also determine how much too big it is, but it will work fine for you. I weigh 185 and ride a 165. I let my friend who is your weight ride it. It was way too big for him but he was still able to come down the mountain with no problems.

It's a tad long if you want to be picky, but with the board I'm assuming being reg camber, a little extra length isnt too bad for the pow runs. You'll be ok, and hey, it's free, so it should work out just fine!

It's a Forum F10. I googled it and searched the forum, but I can't find any information on the board. Has anyone ridden one? It's regular camber.
