Size 12 boots + 25.4 width??

I'm thinking about buying a Burton Twin. I definitely want to get a park board, but it's tough looking for a wide or midwide thats good in the park. The 157 Twin is 25.4 cm wide and the 161 is 25.9 cm wide. Do you think I'll have any toe drag with the 157? I really don't want to go up to the 161 because I think it's a bit too long for the park but I rather have a little too much length than too much toe drag.

BTW I weigh 195 and I'm 6'1

thanks

What angles do you use?? I assume you duck because of your liking of the park, but if you don't duck a bit you might have problems...

why don't you look at the GNU 11up or the Lib DarkSeries Wide... that should solve your problem or even a Rome Slash or Machine would do the trick

I was most likely going to resort to the K2 Afterblack if the Twin isn't wide enough. I'll take a look at the Machine. I'm not too sure if I want a Magne-traction board, otherwise the Dark Series would probably be my #1 pick.
