Throw out #5-8 and you simply cannot go wrong with any of those boards.

I say either a Arbor A-Frame or NS F1. That said if your buying this late its almost worth waiting until the 2010 stuff hits the market and get a NS F1 Reverse Camber board...that shit will be sick...

Although your in quite a situation being such a big guy with small feet...you need a longer board..but longer boards mean bigger waist which you dont necessarily need with only a 9.5 boot...

Theres actually nothing wrong with any of those boards, sick list. Get whatever you can find a decent deal on.

Maybe nothing's wrong... just I've heard great things about the others, and have not heard much about 5-8

I'm assuming you want a board you'll be happy with for several years to come. So, are you planning to drop some pounds in the near future? I'm being seirous.

The B D I is the only board on the list that I have experience with. Is a real nice all around board but it has a very slight park board feel to it. With that being said I am going to get a NS heritage for next year. Do not think you could go wrong with any of those boards. I do have an Atomic ( Cold Smoke ) and love it for the icy day conditions hold an edge a bit better then the B D I. The B D I is at like a 2 Degree edge bevel the Atomic is at 1 degree edge bevel( could be wrong never could find the stats on the BDI and have not had to sharpen the edges yet on it).
