too short?

I just bought a burton king 158 last winter. it worked very well for me then. since then, i have grown several inches. I am about 6 feet but very light (about 145-150lbs). The board now comes up to about the bottom of my neck. I have heard its all about weight, and for my weight this board should last a while longer, seeing as though average weight for it is around 145-185lbs. Im just hoping this fact is true and that the board isnt too short for me because its practically brand new. please tell me your opinion. thanks

A 158 at 150 pounds is not too short at all. You'll be fine.

EDIT: Height isn't as big a factor as weight. Weight determines how the board flexes and that is what figures into how well it handles the slopes.
