Default NEW board. Too big?

I got a 2010 park pickle at my local mountain blowout sale for 250 dollars brand new. I went there with my fingers crossed for a 157w, and I did find a 159w. Considering i need a wide due to my size 13 boots, I was ecstatic at my find. However, I'm a little nervous if 159 is too big for me, and even if it is, how much of a difference is that going to make? is it going to make a 200 dollar difference (the cost difference between this board a brand new 2010 one). I am 6'3" and weigh about 150. I know the park pickle is a softer board, so I wonder if that's gonna let me get away with being a little bit longer for a park board (that's where I do 90% of my riding due to crappy lower appalachain mtn conditions)

Man, I thought I was skinny! You're tall enough for that board, just eat lots of donuts and pizza, put on another 15lbs and it'll be perfect for ya

If you plan on only jibing with a 159 at 150 lbs it may be too big but if you do kickers it may be good :S

start lifting and eating more - within the 2 or so months before the season you can def put on 10-15 lbs and the board would be purty for you

it comes down to what you ride, it's definitley a lil bigger than you wanna be riding but i doubt youll notice a huge difference between the 157 and 159. And to put on 10-15lbs isn't gonna be an easy task if he's 6'3" and 150lbs unless you start downing ice cream on a daily basis. I wouldn't worry about the board at all, it'll be all mental whether it rides good or not. You got a sick deal anyways so you could sell it if it absolutely sucks.

I think you need to spend some money on food instead of a board.
