skl,

You are so not alone. I've seen people with smaller feet who have edges right up to the tips of their toes.
I'd like to assume most people ride their boards way too wide. Just like how some people assume their shoe size is actually bigger than needs to be.

I'm size 8, and any cambered board more than 24.7 wide I dislike.

On reverse camber boards, you can accommodate much wider widths since the rocker will make side to side turns much easier to initiate.

In the end, I wish more companies made narrower waist widths for boards around 153-156.
