Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).
Thanks for the heads up!

My bare foot measured out as exactly 10.5 inches, or 26.67 cm.

Now, is there any way that I can compare this measurement with a board without physically having it in front of me (as to order online)? I know that the waist width isn't exactly the live-or-die metric.

With all of the said, would the 161, 165, or 169 Barracuda suit my needs, or should I just concede to my yeti features and go wide?

Thanks again!
