It would depend on the specific board and the model year, though.
2011 Chilly Destroyer is 25.8 at the waist.

With a 9.5 boot, you can certainly get away with that. It just won't be as responsive as a standard width.

Forum is actually an ideal company for us smallish footed folks. Like Kimchi said, their standard width boards usually run narrow to begin with. Which is probably one of the reasons why I like their boards
