Default weight limit??

hello...i have been snowboarding for a few years, and i got my board, a burton feelgood 149 a couple years ago, and now i exceed the posted weight range for it by like 5 pounds...I'm 5'7" and 130 pounds...am I going to break my board? Are there any repercussions for riding a board that may be too small for me?? Any help would be greatly appreciated

the added weight will give you more flex and pop in your turns cruisin down some nice groomers. The steeper the better my friend
