Thanks to everyone for their thoughts.
I know there are alot of "is this size ok for me" kind of posts which no doubt drive you all nuts, so appreciate your experienced opinions while I am a bit in the dark on if I could sneak it and use it ..or best not to.. it's a pretty decent investment so want to make sure I do it right!
At this stage I'm really thinking of returning it.
I want this board to last me ages, so probably best to not skimp and pay extra to get right size.

|wrathfuldeity||150 is too small...period. I'm 180# and about the shortest I'll go is 155 on a stiff cambered. On a 150 you might not even be able to get your stance width. A 150 board will be ok for the first few days...but there is no room to progress...it will quickly feel too short, too squirrely, will easily washout and will not hold an edge under your heft. Get at least a 155 or 56.|

You will be fine. As you progress you will figure what what your ideal size is for your conditions.
While you are still learning it's easier with a shorter board.

I never did understand all this about size... I understand the logics behind it, yet whenever i get on a board bigger than 155 i just feel swamped...
You can see the boards i ride below, and having ridden the 158 quite a bit this year, i ALWAYS find myself going back to the smaller boards, but then i like park and twisting in the trees... Hehe

|scottb7||no you have it wrong....which is why people are saying you need bigger for your weight. for your weight 154-158 would be more fun.|

Guess another option is to return it and try get a 156 imported from the US.
Makes it a fair bit more expensive tho.
Would a 156 be not as much fun tho for my size?
I've only rented in past so not sure of what boards I'd used at time ..

|F1EA||Wow 190lbs on a 150cm is pretty small. Smallest for you may be something like 155cm. Or you can give the 150 a try and see how it goes...|
