It's not a big deal man, you'll be fine

While you have big feet there are companies who make boards for your foot. Donek has a board called the Sasquatch that is specifically made for those with bigger than size 12 feet. If you find that the model might come up short they can also do a custom model for you. You'll have to pay for it, but Donek does make a quality product.

It almost sounds as though you are looking for an excuse not to snowboard; just don`t concentrate so much on why it won`t work and focus on making it happen.
Agreed 100%! ^-^'

Amen to that lol, the Fatbob was my first board as well. Feels more like a boat than a snowboard.

FatBob was my second board...the first one I got was a regular width Nitro Phase I believe and after about a 1.5 seasons of falling everytime I turned I figured I couldn't be that bad so I bought a fatbob and the rest is history. My favorite wide board from the OG times was my Ride Mountain board...the precursor to the Yukon. I loved that board and wish I still had it for memories sake!

You need to invest in a pair of boots that shrink your foot print. If you have a size 11 you could get (EX: ride duece) and have theoretically a size 9.5. SICK!!! i have a size 12 foot and fit on a darkstar and dh no prob!
