Board Size, Narrow Stance, and Small Boot Size Problem?
So I finally got my board shipped but after setting up my bindings I'm worried about a couple things. For my background info:
Weight: 140 lbs
Boot Size: 7
Riding Style: All mountain (Mainly freeride)
Age: 22 (Not gaining weight or height)
Budget: $500-700 overall
Location: Las Vegas, NV (Mt. Charleston, Brian Head, Big Bear)
My board is an '09 Rome Agent 152 cm and 249 waist size. I'm using '08 Rome Targas for bindings and 32 Prions. I bought it based on weight since I thought height didn't matter but after setting it up I'm worried about my stance being too narrow since I used up the two innermost holes and I am locked at 18.5" with a 15/-15 stance which is a decent fit but I can't go any more narrow. I'm also worried about my feet being so small on the board and not getting enough edge control. Will there be a noticeable difference since I am short with small feet on a big board? For example, will it be harder to turn since my feet don't line up perfectly with the edges? Or will the board be unstable because my stance is too narrow *for this board.* I hope I don't have to sell this board before I first ride it but if this will definitely be a problem I'd rather sell it before I ride it then scratch it up and sell it afterward.
Thanks for any help.
