so my board is basically too wide? fuck my life.
edit: i've researched a bit, and from what i gathered a size 10.5 + needs a 26cm waist-width, and my 156w is at 26.5 cm. so with my shrinkage tech boot i think a normal width would have been just on the line. i guess if my board feels too sluggish i'll just need to get a 10.5 without shrinkage tech, and i think i'll be okay.
Pretty much. Typically you only need a wide with a size 12+ foot, certain boards will vary. Good news for the future, you don't need a wide board
