you should be alright. if your new to the sport, it might feel a little awkward. but if after a few rides and once you get the hang of it. youll be fine with it.

Ross, I always tell people on here ride what your comfortable with, if possible try a couple different sizes. Some people like bigger boards and others do not. Though it's a slight difference I prefer a 138 over a 141. A 141 to me just feels like I'm riding a canoe. I am 180 @ 6' about your size. Sure you will get use to anything you ride but always demo (if possible) before you decide. That's my advice.

You can really tell that much difference in riding a 138 and a 141. It is only a little over an inch. How can one be great and the other be like riding a canoe.

I demoed a ibex 138 this weekend and currently ride a 143 covin. I have to say I loved the smaller board when it came to surface trick very little effort to flip the board around etc. Two totally different boards as well. I am 185-190 depending on the day.
