can i ride a sickstick?

Question, I have the chance to get a new Solomon sickstick for a steal of a price but I am wondering if I can ride it.

The problem. I ride a size US 13 boot.

The question. Can I ride a board with a 260mm waist width? Will there be too much overhang?

riding angles 15+ / -10

Thx for the help have to pull the trigger on this Thursday.

What's the difference between the sickstick and the powder snake. Specs look the same. Is the sickstick just a juiced up version?
