Your right on the border line like me.
I wear a size 12 boot also.

I am actually riding a Skate Bannana Lib Tech which is actually narrow for most boards.
And my boot hangs off barely for me. Maybe an inch or two.
I can't feel a difference from last year at all.

If you are looking to buy a board to last you a few years. Get a wide board.
If you get a new board like me every year. Buy a regular board.

If you didn't know this... But boards are usually classified by Regular and Wide.
And i know Rome boards are really good wide boards.
And Forums also make two of the same board. One for regular and one for wide.

Why would you get a regular board over a wide because you were only planning on using it for a year? That doesn't make any fucking sense.

Size 12 boots = get a wide (26cm+). If the boots have a smaller footprint, you can go down to a mid-wide (25.5cm).

I agree, 25.5-26cm depending on your outsole profile.

i wear a size 12 and ride a wide board.


some people claim that they can get away on a regular board if the bindings and boots match up in some magical way that there feet dont hang off.


but they always do so save yourself the frustration and make sure you get a wide snowboard.

I learned to ride on a freestyle standard board. with my 11.5 size feet.
then I got a wide Option Booter from two years ago....life changed!

this year they make a Redline Wide. which I know the booter is based off the Redline model. They have an entry begineer model WIDE call the Logic I think)

but yea, wide for sure. trust me. (And not that I'm an Option fanboy...but I really like their boards and always have).

FWIW...I ride everything and not anything too dedicated..so I'm pretty all mountian that way. I don't compete or anything, just out there to have some fun with the wife.

Because with size 12 foot you can get away with riding a regular board.
Next year, he is going to probably get a bigger boot size. So he would then move up to a wide board.

But for this year only i would get a regular board.
