That is a good suggetsion, brother, and in honesty it will be as good for Neliz as the TBT boards with a possible advantage from Magnetraction and ass pickle (which tends to help get a heelside edge).

But, the big problem we have still remains. All of these boards are wider than Neliz's feet are long (by quite a bit). Snowolf, you are in a more fortunate position as size 8.5 is on the smaller side of "Normal" (yeah, I hate using that word) so you have an extra 1.5 cm to deal with. To hammer how big a difference that is, 1 cm is typically the difference between a normal and wide snowboard.

For full sized riders (170-180 lbs) that have size 7, they really fall outside of the intended rider range for all of the boards that are typically discussed here.
I applaud Mervin for doing Narrow models but they limit them to very small board sizes which helped out Edge in this thread but leaves Neliz hanging.
