Does my board fit me?

I have a 2006 Burton Custom thats a 154mm

I'm 5'7" and weight about 210 pounds

Is that to big for that board?

The board says 120-170 pounds but does the weight really make a difference?

Pushing it. Are you still growing?

Over 200 is definitely pushing it. I have rode customs, the biggest being a 158 or 59, but I'm 160 pounds. 210 is too much weight for a mid flexing boards like the customs

I am not still growing

Last season I rode that board when i was 250
I lot some weight since then.

Is it bad riding that board at my weight? Whats the problems I may have.

Also would it be better if I rode a 2006 Baron ES..I believe its a wide board. I have a 10 boot size

If you're not growing then you could squeak by. I would recommend looking for new boards though. If you like the custom just get and upgraded version. They're stiffer so you could still stay a little bit small.

To give you an idea. I am 6ft and 150 Ilbs. I ride a 154 for all mountain. That's about what I should be at. I actually like shorter boards, but because I am so tall it doesn't work too well.

My friend has a Baron ES Wide thats 156.

Would that be better for me?

If it will be better he wants to trade me

Also why is riding that I am to heavy a bad thing?

What are the disadvantages?

No, with size 10 boots you should be nowhere near a wide board.

is it bad to ride a board that doesn't fit my weight? and why?
