Is a size 7 boot fine in a regular width board?

Hey everyone,

So I have pretty damn small feet for my body. I'm 5 foot 9, weigh 160lbs but wear a size 7 boot. According to a chart I found online due to my foot being size 7 i should be riding on a narrow width board however every narrow width board that I have found online is <151 cm which does not at all suit my weight or height. Do you all think i'll be fine with a regular width board or am I basically fucked?

This thread will be worth a read - small footed support group http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...ort-group.html

What type of board are you after, and for what type of riding? Ideally you'd be looking for something around 240mm waist, so don't be afraid of womens boards either.

I'll be sure to check out that forum so thank you! But since you asked, I'm looking for a strong all mountain board that I can use to really charge down the mountain on. So overall something that is stable in powder and steeper runs but I do like to dabble around at the park occasionally.

Also both my feet are exactly 25 cm and I wear size 7 RIDE Anthems. I just had my board stolen so I'm in the market for a new board. My old board was a 2015 157cm Burton Process Off-Axis. Now being in the market again I really want to try to get myself the best board possible. So thanks in advanced for any advice you may have for me!

For an all mountain board with a narrower waist I don't think you could do better than the Capita NAS without going the full custom route, which would at least double the cost. The 156 has a waist of 24.5 which will be a huge improvement for you over the 25.2 of your process. It's a mid-stiff full camber board with slight set back so should perform fairly similar to your process in powder, but it will charge and carve on piste far better. If powder performance is more important, a Ride Berzerker is another great option. 24.5 is still slightly big for your foot size, but it will feel much more nimble than the process and the bonus of small feet is very minimal overhang for eurocarving if that's your thing.

Well damn, I just order the Capita NAS about an hour ago. Makes me feel a whole lot more confident that i did my research well.

Haha, great timing and great choice. Let us know how you get on with it! I actually really want to try a wide board to see if I lose much response for the improved carving performance, and know how it feels for you small footers!

It has definitely inspired me to hit the gym and work on strengthening my legs. Ever since i got really into boarding (2 years ago) I also got really into squatting lol.
