Default is a shorter board easier for tricks?

for example, on burton's site, a 156 board the weight range is up to 125-175 lbs. i weight exactly 175 lbs but with gear i probably weight 185lbs. which means i should ride a 158 board. currently i'm riding a 155 board.

are there any downsides to riding a shorter board not designed for your weight?

The board is not going to be stable and will not hold up very well at higher speeds.

Is it a park board? I think you are fine with the 155. If you are freeriding with it than it would be a plus to have the longer stick.
