rome boards, like every other company, come in a variety of widths, so its stupid to ask if "rome boards" are wide enough. the specs are clearly posted on the site. with size 12's you of course need a "wide board", thats why they make wide boards, for big feet. most people would agree size 12's need a waist width in the 26.0 ish range. some idiots say their buddy or whoever gets away with a regular width board but just ignore that, if it was true then companies wouldn't make boards any wider than they have too, and anyone with regular or small feet are automatically all riding boards too wide for them, which is obviously ridiculous.

well thats where the problem is. first, the 2010 rome site is not up yet, and second, i have a regular board right now, salomon pulse, and it seems to be wide enough. it works fine. so i did not know if there is any difference or anything. make sense? i have xl ride rx bindings too.

well I would wait till they post the sizes or look at the waist width from last years board. You should think before you post things. After you read this go have your mom slap you in the face for posting so many questions w/ obvious answers. Then tell her I'll be over later, and you better not be there when I get there you little shit.

refer to the part where it says most agree that 26+ is good for 12 and up

mainly toe or heel drag when doing turns. as long as your toes or heels aren't hanging over enough to hit the ground while make turns your good.

well i have been investigating this. and the 156 agent has a 25.2 waist width. and the pusher is suppose to be basically a rocker agent. so i am guessing thats good too. because my salomon has a 25.1 waist width. so should work im guessing
