Default Size 11, Wide and a Jones Mountain Twin

Just looking for some feedback here. I currently a Ride Manic 160w but after doing my homework, I'm stepping up to get the Jones Mountain Twin. Currently I wear size 11 Nike Zoom DK boots. I think it's probably going to come down to personal preference but I'm trying to figure out if I need the wide version or not. Any feedback would be appreciated, even more so if have ridden or currently ride that board. If it makes any difference, I live on the east coast but make multiple trips out west each year. Thanks for your time.

Tell us the waist width of both boards.
You probably dont need the wide.

Literally in the exact same boat as you, size 11 and snagged the 160 mountain twin. No problems whatsoever although my preferred size would have been the 158w.
Fwiw the magic number for waist width for size 11 is in the 257-260 range

This is exactly why I posted this question. I was thinking 158w but can't find it anywhere and understandably so at this time of year. However I did find the 160. Good to know I won't have an issue.

Yea, responded to your PM. A few cm here and there will not make a big difference at all. Give me a blind test of both to ride one day and I doubt i'd be able to tell them apart
