Default Did i buy too big?

Alright, so i bought a 152 flow era for next season to start park, i'm a beginner. I wanna ride probably 65/35 park/all mountain. Still growing, shoe size 10, 120 lbs, and i'm 5'6" right now. Between this winter and now, there's still a lot of time left. Did i make a mistake buying this? i can still return it and get a 149 if needed. Thanks guys! Oh and yeah, one more question, if i have a new board that isn't used yet, should i wax it for the summer and not scrape it off, or is it fine to leave it alone since it has factory wax on it?

I think it should be totally fine. It would be ok to ride now, plus your still growing (getting heavier too). If your feet keeping getting bigger (11 or so over) I would suggest looking into getting a wide board.

^Totally agree and about the storage of your board, it should be fine as long as it is not in humid spot, but also never hurts to wax it also because the more you wax it the faster the base of your board will be Good luck with your board!
