I'd say 25 will work, a little more is nice. I have size 11.5 boots and my boards are 25.5 and 25.8 cm between bindings, plenty of room. You want a little overhang, you don't want the board swallowing your bindings and boots as a whole, that's overkill.

It's between a Capita Mid Life Lost and a Flow Quantum. I'm just getting into jumps and stuff and I may do rails every once in a while but mainly sticking to jumps. I have a 09 Flow Infinite that I got at the beginning of this season and I am VERY pleased w/ so I'm leaning towards the Quantum. I already got some of the david bowie 390's to put on whatever I get.
