In a bind and Need recommendations

Hi guys I'm 6'1 185lbs sz12
my current set up is a 154 ride kink with k2forumulas and i have these sick salomon boots that are size 10.5 the guy at sports chalet says hes friend is a size 13 but a size 11 in boots and he says boots are a little bit bigger so which is why i could fit into the 10.5. After riding in the boots my feet always hurt at the end of the night. when i ride its not a problem i barely notice it but after awhile i feel my feet squished. My question, is there anyone in the same situation as me or know anyone?

my second question is if anyone knows if i could stretch the boot out a little bit to provide a little bit more room for my feet? Any snowboard stores do this?

Also, im looking for a new set up im getting tired of my kink and I'm looking for a board + bindings that can handle the park as well as riding. when i went to mammoth i took my kink and every time i was riding it felt very shaky i think its too flexible. Can anyone recommend a board that has a little bit of both worlds? (jibs and freeride)

thanks i appreciate any input
