This board be ok for me?

Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and pretty new to snowboarding, I learned on a 155 which was said to be too short for my height 5'11 and I weight about 185 lbs. I was interested in the NItro Misfit series Banzai board which is 155cm long , do you guy think this board will work out for me or should I go longer? thanks!

I'd go a little bit longer...its hard when you really want a board and try to compensate for it...you'll have much more fun and improve more on a bit longer of a board. that's my opinion anyway

thanks for the advice, I will look for a longer board... You think 160-161 should be good?

just make sure it's no shorter than the bottom of your chin...but no longer than the tip of your nose
