Another width/weight thread/question

Hey all and thanks in advance. Look for some input from more knowledgeable people than myself.

I am a size 12 - Burton rulers with the shrinkage tech.
I am 6f3 so fairly wide stance and my weight usually fluctuates between 195 and 210.

I picked my board and have actually ordered two to compare sizes - board is a ride wild life and I ordered a 163w and 164 normal.

I would ideally prefer the normal if I can get away with it. Angles are close to 15/15 - move a little here and there. The waist widths are 257 on the normal and 266 on the wide. Weight ranges are 160-210 on the 164 and 160-220+ on the wide.

I am going for one all round board, all mountain. What do you think I am better off with?

Thanks, Mark

You are splitting hairs in every way here.

You ordered both?

Seems like your solution is already in hand.....

I'm guessing you don't need the wide, but my guess is probably worse than when you get them and check.

Good times together talking about snowboarding.

OK if your wearing shrink boots then it would make you a size 11, unless you were saying you were a size 12 with the shrink boots on, anyway i think if you put your stance at 16,16 you should be fine without the wide, just make sure that you don't have any more than half a inch of your boot hanging over your boards edge, plus its way better not to have to have a wide, im speaking from experience cuz i have size 15 boots!!! it sucks trust me

I am a size 12 but it is 11 with the shrinkage I would rather not have a wide if I don't have to but I am little bit worried about the toe and heel hang or the fact that I am right at the limit of weight

those weight suggestions are throwing you off, ignore that.

weight is relevant to choosing board size, but only generally.

You're talking about a 163w and a 164 reg? of the same board? Hairs. That's like +/- breakfast.

Yeah same board. I already have the 163w but 164 regular is coming in Monday. I'm having a little tougher time as I cannot return if I put the bindings on. If it's splitting hairs I'll go with the regular I think then. Like I said I wanted the regular but was worried about the weight and the drag which is why I also ordered the 163w.

if the reg is 164 then dont worry about your weight, it should be plenty stiff for how heavy you are

We are in similar situation. I am 6'3 195lbs with size 12 boots (Burton Ion now, Ruler before) and a regular Burton Custom 163 with 257mm waist width.

It rides well, about half an inch overhang. I think the 266mm version will be a little sluggish for you.
