have i outgrown my board?

So, I realized i've been riding a super short board for my size. Im 6' 4" 170 lbs and currently riding a 156 imperium centurion. i get told its way too short for me all the time, but i really dont notice any problems with it. maybe its cause ive never really ridden any longer boards? do you guys think it would be worth it to invest in a bigger board? or does size not really matter?

Also, any thoughts on the elan prodigy rocker?
Thanks!

You keep getting told its too short by people looking at your height, not knowing your weight. It probably does 'look' too small for sure.

Depends what sort of riding you are doing too.

I ride a 158 and am 5'11" 175lbs. A buddy of mine is like 5'6" and prob same weight as me and rides a 161. Go figure

Throw in a bit of personal preference for good measure.
