Burton Royale 158 Too Big 4 Me?

Hello all! I am 13 years old and weigh 135lbs / 60 kgs, and i was just wondering if a burton royale 158 would be too big for me. Like i know theres a size 154 board but i like the black graphic more lol. Says the weight range on the site is 130 lbs to 180 lbs, but im just making sure and double checking, thanks again.

That board is going to be STIFF, but it CAN be doable, since you are only 13, and probably havn't hit your growth spurt yet. Personal preference, but I'd go down to a 154 if I were you.

Sorry for the wait guys, but i'm still in school lol. Anyway to answer questions i do a lot of freeride stuff mostly, some freestyle and rails every once and a while. I'm 5'6 as far as i know, probably taller now though havent measured in a while...But yea, ill mostly use it for just freeride and crusing

i have a couple alternatives planned out if that board is like too big for me...i know i can handle 156, as ive tried riding my friends board for a day. i was thinking of possibly the 08 custom 156, 08 forum destroyer 154 or last years burton custom x since its like 40% off which kicks ass for the tech i get outa that and it's better than all the other boards...i dont like the graphic too much on the 07 custom x though, only drawback.
