I am only 17 currently, and I feel kind of sad because it runs in my family to be sort of tall and light, and have big feet (oh what a horrible snowboard combination.) I am pretty sure my fate is sealed that I am gonna have big feet
. My dads feet are size 15. Currently my feet are size 11 men size (American), and probably growing still, unfortunatly.
I have heard so much about people with big feet having to get "big feet" boards, and as a result they have a alot less flexbility with a snowboard, they can't use them in parks, can't do jumps as well, the whole feel of the board goes down. It doesn't help much that I will probably be tall and light, and therefore have even less control over a big feet snowboard.
I have been snowboarding since I was 6, and I have loved it every season. I knew it would come to this time, the time that I would have to face reality and get a snowboard for people with big feet. Well, its coming close to that time now, and I am kinda really depressed because I feel like my love for snowboarding is being jeopardized just because of my genes. I kind of don't know what to do. Any other big feet snowboarders out there? How is it snowboarding with big feet? Hopefully there are some out there that actually enjoy snowboarding, but as of yet I have not heard of any yet, everyone says that big feet snowboarders cant do anything near what regular people can.
