Big Foot board, Small Rider!!!!

Well, I have the unusual condition of tending to be rather tall, skinny, lightweight, and very big feet (size 13 to be exact). I have looked at many wide boards from various venders such as burton and rome, but I have never, and I mean never found a board that is for wide footed riders that isn't size 156 CM or more. I only weigh like 135 pounds, and the weight requirements of the big wide footed boards are out of my range. It's almost like the board companies expect riders with big feet to be big as well! But not all of them are, like me. I also don't want a big mountain board or anything, I want more of a freestyle/freeride board, something that will perform good in the park as well.

It seems almost impossible to find a small (148-152) board for small riders with big feet. Do any of you have any suggestions and/or boards that would fit my rare but serious snowboarding disability?

As the 13's your FOOT size or BOOT size? I'll also probably be shot down in flames for this, but how tall are you as well?

You could get away with a Rome Manual in a 154 but you are on the lighter side of their flex scale...you could take a look at the Nitro MFM 152wide

To tell you the truth, sometimes my boot size is larger than my shoe size, sometimes its smaller, some boots are bit, some boots are smaller.

That leads me on to anotheruqestion, which boot is the overall non bulkiest? Or will decrease my overall foot size of a snowboard? I have noticed some boots add on an extra inch off the boardm, while other fit on fine, and they will both fit me fine, any suggestions?
