I've looked up, and still don't understand, waist width. Right now I have a 155 burton flying v with a 256 mm "waist width". Could you explain?
And the hot knife is what I've been eye balling, but like you said it isn't in wide..so I've been back to browsing.
The waist width is the width of the board at it's narrowest point. For your size and what you're wanting to do, I'd probably be looking at something around a 156W.
