Waist Widths and Boot Sizes Clarification
Can someone clarify what waist size of board is optimal/sufficient for a US size 11 boot?
I picked up a relatively cheap K2 Believer161 at the end of last season, thought it would suit my snowboarding perfectly - mainly piste, diving off into some powder and then poncing about trying to do a few small jumps etc. Recently bought boots (Salomon Synapse) - they crept up to a US size 11 which is a size bigger than I thought I'd end up with, so now the conundrum, I have board waist width of 253mm - toes and heels overhang a little - about an inch both sides, thats riding about +15/-15, Is that going to pose any problems with drag or edge lift?
I am 6'1 tall, about 90kg - wondering now if I now need a Wide board (I rode a K2 Select2007 162W last season which is 268mm - that was fine and I wore with a US size10 boot, 1 size smaller than I now have!)
I am considering changing Beliver161 to the Nitro Team 162W @ 270mm or a Ride Antic 162W 263mm - Anyone with any input on these boards?
