I am hoping to get feedback and recommendations from other boarders.

I am 6ft, 190lbs and wear a size 12 boot. I like using the performance boards and have had used Burton boards for most of my rentals but open to any other brand suggestions.

What size board in length range and board waist width would you recommend based on my physical description mentioned above? Also when purchasing a board and bindings separately, are all bindings compatible with any board or are their specs to look for in bindings as well?

I am also interested, in regards to width, a board that does NOT result in toe over hang with my bindings.

I appreciate any help.

Thanks!
you are going to be looking in the 161-163 range if you are an all mountain rider. definitely a wide, meaning 26cm + waist width. what kind of boards were you looking at? regular/reverse camber, etc
