Lib Tech Skate Banana for size 11 feet?

My husband currently rides a 163 Arbor Roundhouse. He loves it, but is interested in picking up a freestyle board so he can spend some time in the park. He likes the fun factor of the Lib Tech Skate Banana, but he wears size 11 boots. At 6'2'' and 185 pounds, he's looking at the 159, which has a 25.5" waist. Do you think this board is wide enough for his feet? Any other recommendations for a decent park board? He's looking for something to ride on hard pack/icy days. He is interested in jumps and ground tricks, but no rails or boxes.

I have size 10 DC Judge boots and they are fine in most conditions on a 156 Banana, but with the slushy snow in this 70 degree weather I sometimes dig in the toe area of my boots on hard carves. Never any problems on MOST slushy snow or hard packed or powder though. This is like super slush, if that makes sense. =/

I wear a size 11 and ride a 152 skate banana with no issues. Btw, at his weight, he should be on a 156.

I have a word limit on my cynicism
