Default should i get a wide board?

i was wondering if i should consider getting a wide board. i am a 6ft tall with size 12 feet and weigh 200lbs. I'm basically a beginner, just started snowboarding this year and loved it. so should i get a regular board or a wide one? thanks in advance

Yup


Get properly fitted for boots though. I wear a 11.5 sneaker and somehow my proper fitting boot is a 10.

I just picked up a new board and switched from a 159 Regular to a 159 Wide. I also switched from a size 10.5 Burton Ion (smaller footprint) to a 11 Nike LunarEndor boot, so I think it was the right move going to a wide as my 10.5 boot was already cutting it close.

Weight also makes a difference. I went up in weight from 200 to 220 and could feel the difference in flex and control on my regular board. It's a minor difference, think just a cm ... could be wrong.

Go wide!
