ehhh, im very oddly build and have very long legs, right now i have mine maxed out on my board at around 26", some ppl have told me that is as wide as i should be going but i come from a basketball backround and am use to having a very wide stance when i play, that combined with my past ankle sprains have maid my flexibility an issue (am currently working on it) so it is easier for me to get low the wider i go.

I found a Heritage with the mammoth on the front in canada for a good deal. The shop says it is a wide board (i have to drive a few hours tomorrow to pick it up). Is it only the wide board that has that graphic or do all the heritages? Just wanna make sure im gettin what i want.

I use a 165 Nitro Magnum. Maximum stance width is 25.2 inches and its 27.4cm waist width. The good thing about the Magnum range is they are super wide even at 157 - 27.2cm (this is the shortest Magnum). I am 6 foot tall and weigh 170 pounds. The board is super stable, both at speeds (it flies) and kickers, and it floats in powder like you wouldn´t believe. You might want to look into the 159 or 161. The price on these things is pretty good, too.

Ya i was gonna get the gullwing (i want to try the new tech), but i found the NS for 340 canadain. I can get the magnum or gullwing for around 300 but that is from the US so there is shipping and fee's from boarder crossing. I think i would get magnum if i wanted to replace my crappy reg camber board.

The normal width Heritage also has that graphic so the best way to tell at a glance would be the serial number. If it starts with H-X it's a wide, no X means it's a regular width. Maybe see if the seller can send you a photo of it?
