Cuz after my second day on a rental snowboard, I ran out & bought my own gear,.. AND I took the advice of the REI salespeople! (...to be fair to them, I started out with {and ultimately returned 2-3 pair,..} of size 11's or even 11.5 boots cuz my feet are "freakin' Wide"!) 10.5 EEE streets & work boots!

I have since learned I don't NEED, never did need a Wide board! But,.. it's mine now. It's a GREAT board & I actually learned to ride pretty damn well on it!

Just can't figure out why the bindings I demo'd didn't give me the trouble (...ride performance problems) that the ones I purchased have!!!
