quick question, need quick answer!

I am a size 13 boot and I need to know if a 160cm long/260mm wide board is a good size for me, because at my local sporting goods store they have a board I like on clearance price. Please help meeeeeeeeeeeee

edit: I am also 5'11 and about 200 lbs, and if anyones wondering, the board is the 2010 Burton Bullet and its for about 250 dollars.

length sounds about right. Could find a wider board but to be honest, there's not many out there that go wider than 265, and no matter what you do with a size 13 you're going to have to duck your stance. A 1/2cm difference probably isn't going to ruin you; a 260 will work and the width difference for something more like 265 will be barely noticeable.

I just bought some 2009 Burton Poachers yesterday for about 60 dollars (on clearance). Are they small profile?

Agreed with everyone else. I'm exactly your demensions, save for a 12 boot, and with a little bit of a ducked stance, I have no problems with drag on a very similarly sized board.

I think Burton designs their boots with reduced footprint, essentially shaving precious millimeters from the toe and heel, so the actual footpring of the boot is smaller (by about 1 size). As always with larger boots, really make sure that you don't have trouble fitting in to a binding before you buy the bindings. A friend of mine wears size 13 (maybe 14?) burtons, and he always has a little trouble getting the ankle strap buckled on his bindings.

ya, what david said above... make sure the boots fit the binder ... and reduced footprint knocks off 3/4 inch
