Board is way too small based on burton charts but if you like it ride it.Hey,
I'm 5'7" intermediate rider.
Mostly I do mountain with a little park.
I'm riding a 06' Burton Custom 154.
I'm about 230 pounds. Never really thought I was to big for the board?
But is there any chance of my board breaking?

You can break it in the park, or maybe in moguls if you get hung up between two of them. This could happen even if you're the right weight.
The amount of edge that keeps a stable hold while carving or while trying to stop. Your weight needs more edge hold. Plus a longer board will have a more stable flex and support your weight. Given you a much better ride.
I think your weight only marginally increases the chance of breaking it.I mean is there a much greater chance of it breaking under me then someone those is 160? is it about that same.
I understand boards break, but I don't want to increase my chances of it happening
