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.
I've ridden 250mm waists on a size 11 boot. You don't need 26, hardly anything is that wide unless you get a bigger board or a wide/midwide most boards areound the 156 length will be somewhere around 253-255 mm.
