any recomendations

I am 5'6 160 lbs sz9 boot.

I just bought a new board 153 08 gnu vertigo. I want to know if it too small for me.

I have been riding for a couple years and want to try more this year. I like to ride groomers and powder and tried a couple little jumps last year.

But this year I want to go all over the mountain, hit the park to try some rails, hit through the trees, little jumps and some groomers and powder. Would this size board be good for all of this type of riding?

I want to know because if it isnt i am returning this to my friend. One more thing, does anyone know about this board ? My friend said it is a good board but i would like to know from other people what you all think.

Thanks for any help and advice

I think size wise you would be ok, I ride a 155 and im 195 lbs. I also have DK vertigo 2007-08 ( the pink one) It rides nice, nice pop and flex also.

I answered you on another forum but I'd have bumped up to around a 155.
