Am I buying the right board?

I just started a month ago. I have a beat up Burton Cruzer 164 which I started with and I just ordered a board that I think would be better to learn and progress. It is Rossignol Circuit Amptek 165 Do you think I am buying the right board? I am 5'10" and 270lb.

I would stick to your current board Being a beginner, there is a lot you will learn about your board, what riding style suits you, and how to ride what you have in general etc.

I bought my first board 10 years ago, used, and I still use it now

I started on a beat up old Burton custom. Rode that for 6 or 7 years and finally retired it last year. I think you have the length about right. Depending on the board you could even go longer based on your weight. Im a similar build...5'11" around 260. I ride a 165W with size 11 boots. My board is a stiff freeride, but with the higher weight, have no problems throwing this thing around! Id use up that cruzer unitl you know what riding style suits you best.
