Default park board, how big should it be.

okay well this is a classic newbie question (and i couldn't find my old thread.
so im about 5 11, i weigh 145, and i have a size 11 boot.
now im looking at the 10' evo-r (or revolver) and i was wondering what size should it be? its going to be park board. i was thinking like 151.

you may need a wide board due to shoe size..if you are not going to do any big jumps check the horrorscope 151 wide

If I wear a size 10 or 10.5 boot (depending on company), does that mean I should be riding a wide too? lets say for the never summer SL-R and I want to ride the 150 with a 253mm waist, does that mean my 10.5 boot would be sticking off the edges because its too small? or would Large bindings and shoe still be completely on the board.

And also if I wear typical street shoes of 10.5, i typically would go half a size down right? Do i want room so i can wiggle my toes or not?

for boot size you have to try different boots and see what fits best. different comanies have different sizing so i cant tell you if you are going to size down for sure, you should try yourself. Generally speakin boots need to fit tight cos they pack out after a few days of riding. your toes should barely touch the end of your boot or be just a hair away from doing so. CAREFULL your toes should not be mashed in any way, just a nice tight fit. I think that for the slr you will be fine if your stance is not too tight and you ride duck (like 15/-15 angles)

to the OP: this goes to you as well. for your weight a 151 is fine for a park board and if you have a wide and ducked stance you may not need to go wide, depending on the waist width, ehich i am not familiar with. someone who has big feet or rodes an evo-r would be better at answering your question though...

If you are indeed an 11, you'll be fine on the regular 151 Horror. If you want a little more stability in landings, but sacrificing edge to edge a little, the 151w will also work.

I would say it should be up to your chin at most

height has nothing to do with chosing a board..weight is the most importand as well as shoe size to determine the width
