Default Waist width problems

My boot size is 7 and wear Nike Vapens. My bindings are S/M Union Contacts and I ride a duck Stance(-15, 15). The board I want is a 136 Never Summer Evo mini but it's waist width is 23.2 cm. Can my boots fit on the board without toe drag, etc?

Bigger question do you need to ride something that small or is it to compensate for inability and comfort to ride an appropriate sized deck? Or are you a midget and afraid to admit that?

No, the problem is that I'm tall(5' 3") but am REALLY underweight(73lbs). O_O B/c of this I gotta ride a kids board to compensate for my weight.
I'm 13 BTW.

But the things is, I need a board which will flew easily(considering my weight). I've rented a few times and they always end up giving my extremely stiff boards which I can't even use to ollie.
By the way, I simply adore your snowboard creations, ETM. Great work!

You don't need a 35. Look at some of the tweener sized decks around 140 to 145 they'll fit your foot better and won't be too stiff.
