Default burton royale 159cm 2007 board. too big for me??

hi i was wondering if this board is too big for me, i am 5`5 160lbs bootsize 9. i bought this on impulse last year with out doin much research and i think i might of made a big mistake. i mostly ride the mountains and ride powder when available. i dont do parks. though this season i hope to try somee stuff.
i live in canada so if you think i should get a new board recomend a place over the internet.
budget under350 if possible
thanks dave.

im not gunna lie, i have a royale 154, with size 10.5 feet, im 5'7 and i think that the 159 would be way too big..first off dont get a mid-wide or a wide at all. dont get me wrong the royale is a great board, but its not for your body type or footsize. 159 seems way too big in my opinion. try and find an 07 burton air, which is its slimmed down brother.

that would be a nice board to take in the park and ride everywhere..i think the royale is a great park board, even though its main purpose is all mountain, so the air should be the same..
they actually are an all mountain board geared towards the park if that makes sense.
