wide or regular?

hi guys. i am recently thinking of switching my wide board (a Ride Fleetwood 158) to a regular sized Burton Custom 158. i am 182cm (5"10) and i wear size 10 boots. could someone please give me some suggestions on whether i should stick with a wide snowboard or a regular sized snowboard? thanks a lot =)

i don't see why you need a wide board for size 10 feet (unless you are a UK 10 which is US 11). or maybe unless you have boots that have ginormous boot footprint. it would be helpful if you gave waist widths though. but yea, definitely go down to a regular or perhaps a mid-wide board.

thanks for the advices guys i really appreciate it! i think i'm gonna go for a non-wide board. do you guys think a pair of large sized burton mission bindings will be too big for a regular sized board?
