Waists width help

I'm interested on riding a Burton nugget but I'm afraid of toe/heel drag.
The 138cm nugget has a 243mm waist width
I have size 10 men's Burton Moto(technically size 9 because of the Burton size reduction tech) and medium custom bindings.

Will I be able to ride this with no or very little toe/heel drag?
Maybe a certain stance will help me?

If it's a little too much toe/heel drag, what if I get new Burton motos but size 9(size 8 with from the Burton raduction tech) and small bindings instead of medium, will I be able to ride this?


Finally, what about the Burton nug 142cm
It's supposed to be ridden 8-10cm smaller than usual and I normally ride a 145.
The nug has. 253mm waist width. Is this too big and is the board too big for me?

Why do you want to ride infant/girl size board?

How much do you weight? Why are you riding such a small board?

Yea I ride a 145 and sometimes a 147 but for the Nug/Nugget. It uses burton's raduction technology. it's supposed to be 8-10cm smaller than normal so that's why I was looking at the 138cm nugget
