Your probably going to need a wide considering your foot size.

I would recommend a Capita Black Death if your not interested in park. Once you want to step into the park, come back for another suggestion ( =

The Black Death is a mid to stiff flex, regular cambered board that's super light and hauls bawls.

CAPiTA Super Corporation | We devour everything!

Check out the Capita lineup, they make the highest quality boards for the cheapest price imo.

No worries. I have a 2010 Capita Black Death and Horrorscope.

Death for bigger/all mountain stuff, and the Horrorscope for playing around.

The FK tech is seriously legit.... I wish my Horrorscope had more dampening as I would take it all over the mountain. I gotta put it away when things get choppy.

Here's some info on choosing boards. Don't just look at the chart (first link) but check out the science on the second link.

the black death comes in a Wide model which would be great for size 12s, I think the waist is only 255ish or something on the regular width Death.

I want it to be my next board
