165cm board to learn on for a 220-230lb person?

Hi, I bought a board when i weighed roughly 250-260. I went on a hard cut this year and dropped 40 pounds, but i put a little weight back on so im sitting at 220-230. Will this board be too big?

Gnu Carbon Credit BTX Series Snowboard - Wide - 2010 BCS from Dogfunk.com

I bought it to learn on , so that when i do go boarding, Im riding the same board each time.

No homo, but youre one of my favorite people on this site lol.. I surf through a lot of threads, and I see you a lot =D

O ya i better ask you.. Um, ya, i bought all my gear before my cut, so my pants are pretty damn huge on me.. Baggy is ok right? hahah.. . like i wear 36" jeans, but i could probably squeeze into a 34, and my pants are 40-42" .. Ya, im going ot have to wear a belt with them, but im considering just buying a new pair.

The board will be fine for you. Hell, I learned how to ride back in the 90's on a 168 K2 Dart. At the time I was 6'1" and about 180lbs. Also, I have large feet (size 13) and that board had the narrowest waist width ever. It was stupid skinny. As for the pants, you'll be fine as long as you remeber the belt. If you can return them and get a more appropriate size then do that if it makes you feel better. No one is going to notice if your pants are big though.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
