Question Wide freestyle board!!

Ive been looking all around web sites and I can't seem to find a wide twin shaped board. I need a board that is either 155 or 157 with a waist size over or close to 26.5 (preferably over) because I have a size 14 boot. I want a board that has a twin or somewhat twinnish shape; I found the lib tech skunk ape but I was hoping to pay a little less, but I will pay that ammount (I don't really like the graphics lol). If anyone knows of a board like that but for less or from a different company I would appreciate of if you could tell me.

Thanks

I was hoping to get a 2008/2009 model because they will be on sale. Any more options?

Head Transit XL 156 = 26.6 waist and true twin

Never Summer Revolver R 156 = 26.1 waist and true twin (the 159 is 26.4 @BuySnow.com for $270)

Nitro Misfit Wide 155.6 = 26.6 waist and true twin

Nitro Team Wide 155 = 26.4 waist and directional twin

Hope this helps. I am familiar with the size 14 conundrum.

Is the head snowboard any good? Would it be good for an intermediate-advanced rider?

I haven't seen many around, and I have not used one so I'm not sure about the quality. I was looking to get the 164 version this year but went with a directional AT board instead, but I did come across this Review:
Head Transit I. Snowboard 2009 : Snowboards | evo
Sounds like good quality with reinforced edges for grinding, but mabye a little stiff.
I know Head makes good skis. If you ever watch the World Championships or Olympics, Elan, Head, and Rossignal are always on the podium. I also saw someone riding pipe in the progression series on TV riding a Transit, so at least 1 person with skills choses to ride it =)

Thanks for the list, It helped a lot. I think Im going to go with the misfit though because I need the board to he able to perform in powder somewhat well, just in case. The head seemed like it would only work in the park and pipe, but thanks for getting me the info.
