Your definately gonna need a wide board. Probably with a waist width close to 26cm. A board length would have to do with the type of riding you would be doing. Probably between 148 and 152

isnt snowboardin2137 the guy flooding this forum with bataleon topics?

why would you say i definitely need a wide board? because of my shoe size? is there any advantages to having a wide board?
Im looking for a good all-mountain board, since im really not experienced yet and would like to get the basics of the sport down solid before trying any park riding

12+ boot size would require a wide board to avoid too much drag. You should try on boots, though. Many people wear smaller boots than shoes.

Check out sierrasnowboard.com, they seem to have the lowest prices of all. I just bought a Never Summer Heritage X for $360 on christysports.com, which was the cheapest place I could find that board anywhere. Might be worth checking them out as well.
