The 153 has a 24.7 cm waist... You will definately have some major drag. You need at least a 156 wide. With a size 13 boot, any board you buy should be a wide version.
The issue is that even though the previous boot size was 13, everything I read here suggests that 27 cm (10.5 in) is actually more like...a size 9. I'm just confused by all the sizes. So what you are saying is that I would be trying to fit a 27 cm foot on a 24.7 cm board? I don't suppose the Carbon Credits are just naturally wide, are they?
@post before: seller offered to send a 153 for me to try instead. I weigh about 135.
