help?

Posting this on behalf of my mate,

Last year he hired a board and he only just fit into the largest boots/bindings they had.

now the problem is he has a size 14-15 foot (its freaky his school shoe weighs 1.4kg each) is there a boot binding and then board that he can ride as the guy said he might have to ski this year and I really don't want to have to pay him out for being a poofter lol

Thanks for the help

Mitch

I know that myt Rome 390s say that they can fit a boot up to size 14.5. Also you should check out some of burtons boots because some of them are lower profile, making them less bulky and easier to fit into a binding. For example lets say your friend buys a size 15 boot, it will be as small on the outside as a size 14.

No hire place would stock that would they? as this is only his second time and dont think he plans to go in a while like some who got a few times a year, so boubt he would be after spending heaps of $$$

Do you mean a rental shop. No a rental shop wouldn't. You would have to buy them.

Just shop around until you find a rental place that caters to clowns. Finding fitting boots will be a lot harder than bindings, a large set of bindings with toe and ankle straps extended out should fit (easily adjustable if the shop doesn't do it while you're there)
