Custom Wide / Jones Aviator.Exchnage?

I've been reading a lot of very positive reviews on Jones aviator lately and it made thinking if I should exchange my new 2014 Burton Custom Wide (169cm) to 2015 164cm Jones Aviator. My main concern what's again is my freakishly big boots (US size 14). I'm 6.4 at 230lb. I checked specs on both and it seems Jones is actually 1mm wider that Custom W. Also I'm a beginner with one season. What do you guys think should I go for it?

Jones Aviator 164cm 2015:
Effective Edge: 1190mm
Waist Width (cm): 26.5
Sidecut (m): 8.4

Burton Custom Wide 169cm 2015:
Effective Edge: 1315 mm
Waist Width: 26.4 cm
Sidecut: 8.6 m

1) 1mm wont make a difference.
2) waist width is irrelevant due to the fact you dont place your feet in the middle of the board.
3) once binding angles, binding placement and side cut are all factored in, it will come down to splitting hairs when comparing the widths.
4) it also depends on what you want out of the board and what style of riding you enjoy. both are 2 completely decks.

I'm looking for a free-ride board. I'm more interested in carving and high speeds. Very little ( if wondered by mistake ) or no park.

It won't matter, ur a newb you won't use near the potential of either board for a bit. Just go out often and have fun.

Smoke more pot, you're fine
