Default What size should I get for the Bataleon Global Warmer

Hello,

First off, this is my first post.

I am trying to figure out what size should I get for the Bataleon Global Warmer 2014.

My height is ~1.95 m, my weight 81 KGs and I wear a US size 13 for the boot, which makes my bindings to be a size XL. My previous board was a Burton Bullet 164 wide, which I personally think it's a bit too big for me.

Now, my question is, what size should I get for the Global Warmer, knowing my weight and my foot size. I don't want to create heel or toe drag since I wear a large boot size and I really don't want to put too much preasure on the board, regardless of what I choose to do with it, buttering or all mountain riding.

I spoke to a bloke that works at Bataleon and he suggested to get the 156wide version of the GW, to avoid the toe and heel drag. I still remain sceptical about the power that the board can handle from my weight and the pressure that I might apply to it. Note that I'm not an advanced rider, I am only trying to figure out if the board will sustain my weight while doing buttering and some freestyling.

I know that this isn't the best way to get advice but I don't have any shops near me or in my country that have Bataleon gear, so I'm left with advice from the people and the internet.

It seems that the specs put up on evo.com about the 156W are as follows:

Tip Width (mm) : 307
Waist Width (mm) : 264
Tail Width (mm) : 307

Now, since I'm wearing a US size 13 for my boot, which is 31 CM in length and the waist width of the board is 26.4 CM won't this size be too small and make the boot stick out too much to create heel and toe drag ?

1. you dont stand on the waist, so no, a 156w is not too narrow

2. you are pretty heavy for a board that size especially one that is soft, you will squish that, which is rideable, but know it. its will be pretty jibby/flappy/underimpressive on non-park.

I see. So it wouldn't be so wise to get it, knowing my weight. I am well aware of the fact that it's really soft, that's why I am having all these questions in my mind.
