Default Wide or Not Wide...that is the question...

Hey everyone, new here.

Looking to get an Arbor snowboard for this coming winter. Looking to pick up an '09 model before the '10's come out.

I wear size 12 boots, 6', 180#. I've been riding a "wide" board.

I'm wondering if I could fit on the Element (254mm width for the 161) without too much overhang. I have Rome 390 bindings. I'm getting new boots and would be sure to look for a 12 with a smaller footprint.

If the Element is totally out of the question...how are the Arbor Roundhouse boards? Apparently their "wide" board...but a width of 266mm...that's pretty freakin wide! I'm worried about handling.


Thoughts everyone?

you will be fine with the element. i rode an element with 12s for two years and no drag. i now ride a 251 waist with 12s and still get no drag. don't worry about it.

jibking- just ride. stop asking so many equipment questions.
