Need Opinions about Ride board

Hello everyone, i am new here and to snowboarding. I am a snowboard noob and i want to buy myself a board because i dont like rentals. A friend of mine offered me his used snowboard because he is travelling. I am hoping someone can explain a bit about this board and how much its worth. pictures attached.

I am 26years old
169cm tall, 60 kg of weight and after some research i know i am a goofy.
All i know is that the brand is Ride, and its 161 cm

161 would be good, if you were advanced and it was a powder only bord, if you are going to ride it everywhere - it is way to big for you.

I don't recognize the board, but yes, way too big for your weight.

Thank you .. I read some reviews, it seems good for speed, but not so good for turns, and above all that its longer than i should ride ! LOL
But i have to stick with it, its available for me, and where i live, it is better than rentals.
What are the disadvantages of beginning on such a board? I understand it will be hard to turn, but can i adapt to it with time? its gonna be harder or impossible to ride ?
Thanks
