your boot size and waist Width

Since i am kinda a border line boot size a 10.5, i feel like i have to limit my choice of board due to waist width.

i currently ride a 25.2 width board and was wondering if i could ride a 24.8 or 24.9 without toe drag?

so i thought i could get some help by people posting their boot size and waist width and angles so as to get an idea of what one can get away with. This could prob help a bunch of people out that are wondering what waist width to get.

So i'll start.

Waist width: 25.2
Boot size: 10.5 burton freestyle
Angles: 15/-15

I'm not a good techy person(I can't read and understand board specs well) so I won't be able to help much. But I think this is a great idea (Now people will have an idea of what to look for in waist width.)Maybe if it gets enough posts someone could sticky it. You should probably go with 25 and up for your size boot though. I think 11 or 10 is the border size for regular and wide boards.

Here's the deal.

Waist width is not a deciding factor.

Of equal importance is the sidecut radius/depth, and the tip widths.

Where are your feet when you stand on your board? Over the narrowest part of the board?



As you can see, the waist is 25cm, but the width is 26cm at the binding inserts. This would be a fairly deep sidecut. A mellow sidecut might be just over 25cm at the inserts.

Complicating this would be progressive/dual/triple/quadratic/etc sidecut shapes.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

GOD IS DONUT
