What size?

Ok, I have asked this a couple times and got some very different answers and I just want someone who knows to tell me what waist size I can get for a size 14 boot for no heel or toe drag (15,-15 stance angles), my old board wasn't wide and I'm getting tired of the drag. I have 32 boots size 14. Going to buy a new board soon so quick replies are appreciated.


Thanks

depends on the sidecut and your stance width

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

Yes you have. You've even PM'd me twice. Amazing how the answers never change no matter how many new topics you start and how many times you ask the question, isn't it?

Look, you really need to come to grips with a certain reality regarding your question:
You want an absolute answer to a question with too many variables. You seemed to have missed that point in all the answers you've gotten to this same question. Nobody is there to look at your boots, nobody is there to look at your bindings, and nobody is there to look at the boots in the bindings mounted on the board and see your riding style to check out just how high of an angle you get on your turns. Get used to it. Anyone who gives you an absolute answer is spitballing their unqualified best guess. That is the correct answer, like it or not. No, really. Honest.

I do realize that this question is hard to answer if you can't physically see my stuff, but I'm getting a new board and its quite a bit longer than my old one and I wanted to make sure to get the right one. I just wanted some other people with size 14 (or close) boots to tell me there waist size. Sorry if I'm not giving you enough information. I just wanted to see what worked for other people. It would be a lot better if it was just one size fits all. Lol

I'm going to assume that you're over 6' and have a 24"+ stance width.

You're likely going to need at minimum a mid-wide with a very deep sidecut.

Why don't you take your boots/bindings into a store and test fit them. No one, and I mean no one, will be able to tell you what waist size to get because there are just tooooooooooooo many variables as MunkySpunk has already told you.

why don't you just get a board with a waist size 26.0cm or greater and then you will know that you will be fine. As for stance width, measure it. Measure from the middle of the baseplate on each binding to the other. Likely between 22-24 inches.

I wear size 14 Moto boots with Drake Super Sport bindings.
My board is a K2 Format Wide 165 with:
8.4 m dual progressive sidecut
27.1cm waist width
I ride with 22in stance width
Back foot is 0 or -3, front is like 21

I had to mount the bindings as far back as possible toward the heel side by using the slots in the base plate and adjust the heel cups all the way back so that my feet were centered on the board. Otherwise my toes were hanging over much farther than my heels. This is something else you might want to think about. If your bindings aren't as adjustable, your toes might be hanging off even with a wide board.
Anyway, after these adjustments I have never had a problem with heel/toe drag. I have also ridden an old Lamar 159 that had about a 26.7 ww and I didn't have any issues but it was getting pretty close.
I wouldn't go under 26 1/2 but with your 15/-15 angles you may be able to squeeze out a couple more hundredths (as long as you have the same or greater stance width).
