Default braking a board

any one ever break or hear of braking a board doing a nose/tail press
been doing some carpet boarding and i started doing presses
now i can lean the board way over and bring the rear binding off the ground and even go over the tip if i want.
the board seams to hold no problem compared to my small one.
im 180 pounds give or take 5, its a k2 select 162 wide

i also have a 154 LTD (think i payed around 100 for it) i was considering turning this in to a park board. good idea, or could it break?

oh ya one more thing
i started doing a nolie in to a tail press
if i land like that repeatedly can it do damage or am i fine?
also iv been told this board is too big for me? im 5'8 -5'9 180 pounds and a size 10 foot
if it's meant for a heavier person dose that mean it will be more forgiving and i can push it harder with out maxing it out or damaging it?
i have notice i cant get any speed chatter and iv bombed it straight down a black diamond at full speed, and its allot better in powder.

That length is probably cool for you at 180lb. I weight the same and I'll be riding something around that mark. Presses shouldn't be any issue, I slo-mo'd a video of be doing a bs180 way too far in the back seat. My board on landing bent almost at a right angle, boards are alot tougher than they can look.
