Will Never Summer Premier F1-R be OK for large feet?

Hello

I'm looking at getting this board:

Never Summer Premier F1-R
163cm
Waist is 25.7cm

Anyone using this size with large feet?

My boots are US size 12 / European size 46.

Current board has a waist of 26.0.

3mm should not make much of a difference should it?

with positive binding angles and a little bit set back you will be fine

I wear a size 14 with 15 and -12 angles with a 23.5-24" width on a 260 waist and I could go slightly smaller with the waist.

I have been evaluating the same boards, well maybe the Titan over the F1-R, but same dilemna. I wear a 11.5(US) boot. I always ride a wide board, partly for my 250 lb weight. My current board is a Gnu Rider's Choice 164 Wide with a 26.8 waist. I ride 0/+15. At 0, I have definite overhang, but I have never had any drag. I'd like to consider a non-wide board like the F1-R or Titan, but am afraid I need to go for the Titan TX wide instead. Also, the wides accommodate us fatties. What do you all think?

0 degree rear, +15 degree front. The width is 26.8cm waist on my board. Basically, my rear foot is perpendicular and my front foot is pointed comfortably downhill. I only really cruise on powder and groomers, though I hit jumps when they are in my way. Does that seem unusual? I've been playing with turning my rear binding downhill a bit (more paralled to my front, racing style), maybe 3 degrees, but it leaves me less balanced when standing still.

Ah gotcha

Never really seen anyone say 0 and +15 but I guess you have a goofy setup so your saying it that way

Ya man, your one of very few people I know that has a 0 in angles. Pretty easy to get drag with an angle like that.

All the more reason for people to educate themselves instead of being led around like a bunch of sheep

Interesting. I never thought it was strange. I set it up that way myself over time finding what I liked. For a while I had it set up 0/0 with both feet perpendicular, but I couldn't see down mountain very well. (Yes, I am goofy, sorry that wasn't clear)

So, in that case, how would you recommend setting it up?
