too small of a board?

so i just purchased a capita totally fk'n awesome snowboard. its a 155 and as of now i like it (dont love it yet since i cant ride it ) i was just wondering if i got a too small of a board. my first 2 boards were a capita black death inc 156 and a sierra reverse crew 155. i figured a smaller board might be better since i want to hit the park a few times but it would mostly be groomers. im in the east coast so i figured i wouldnt really see much/any pow and the first 2 boards were around that same size. on a snowboard calculator it says i should be riding a 160 which to me seems way too big.

im 5'10 and around 190 lbs but hopefully if i find some motivation i will drop down to 170-180 range. lol

155 is just about right for park at you're size. Wouldn't recommend it for powder but it's doable
