is the board good for my level?

Hello guys..
I just bought a burton bullet 09/10 as i found the reviews to be good and the price within my price range. I bought some Burton Custom bindings for the board and am ready to go. My problem is, im not sure this board is at the right level for me. I have ridden 3 weeks, and am able to take most pists without much trouble. What goes for my park riding, im not really able to do anything but jumping.. I read everywhere it is a beginner-intermediate board, but no definitions of what this really means. Will i learn anything on this board (both park and freeride) or am i already out of it's skill range?

I'm no ASII instructor or anything, but I think you'll be just fine. The board doesn't "really" have a mind of its own. It's Burton rated as a 2/10 in terms of feel, which means it's quite soft and mellow so you won't be fighting with a twitchy ultra-responsive board (this is a good thing).

Either way, if you can ride and even somewhat execute linked skidded turns, you wouldn't be horribly worse off on a vapor than on your bullet. Having a better board than what you're capable of (as long as you're not a TOTAL beginner) is not something to be afraid of.

Boards don't have skill ranges. =)

Some boards are softer than others, some boards are stiffer than others. Some use much higher quality materials, and therefore cost more. Others use more budget-minded materials and cost less.

The Burton Bullet is a lower priced all mountain board, that will serve you just fine. It's a jack of all trades; ok at everything, great at nothing.

As long as you got the right size, you're fine. Three question:

How much do you weigh?
What size shoe are you?
What length board did you buy?

Okay, thanks for your help so far
The board is 160cm, and as you probably know wide board.
I am 183cm's (6 feet), 78kg's (172 pounds) and a boot size 13us/46,5eur
