Wrong forum to ask for Burton advice. You won't find many people here who support Burton.

Never Summer
Capita
YES!
Smokin

And a few other companies are making much superior boards than Burton

And with a size 11, you're borderline... It would depend on the foot print of your boot, angles, and stance width. Also your riding style makes a difference...

If the price is right the Joystick may be fine, but it is true that most of us prefer boards other then Burton.

You can usually find superior boards for cheaper then Burton too, Burton is capitalizing on the fact that you don't know much about snowboarding and they are a house-hold name.

Im one of the few who actually supports Burton in some way, but the joystick is a really nice board, on burtons "feel" meter it ranks a 4, which means it is a slightly soft, yet a fast board. But what type of riding do you do? park, powder, groomer, or halfpipe. If you can fiegure that part out that will help you find the best board. But the joystick is a all mountain board, so if you are an all around rider, its a safe bet to get this board.
