27cm is 11.5

Your board is too small. Go with the 156w (as in 156 wide)

Alright.

I can't prevent that other board/boots confuse me though. It was a 155 board, and the boots didn't come anywhere near either edge of the board. Is 153 that much smaller?

My bad... youre actually a 9.5 if you are 27cm. I would just go into a local store and get your boots FIRST. Make sure they fit properly and then get the board based on that size. You might be able to get away with a 153 at 9.5.

For starters measure your foot without socks. If your measurement of 27cm is correct, that's a Men's US shoe size of 9 maybe 8.5 w/o the socks.

How tall are you? It'll give us an idea if you're measuring your foot wrong. (if you're 5feet tall, I highly doubt you have size 12 or 13 boots).

OK sounds like you're definitely not a size 13 shoe, probably a 9.

At that size you won't have any difficulty on a regular width board.

The 159cm board is way too big for you at 135 pounds. 153 might even be a little long but manageable.

It sounds like you don't need a wide board and the 153 should fit fine.

For boots, it's best to go try a bunch on. But if you have to buy online measure your foot without socks. Press your foot against the wall and mark where your toes extend to. Now measure that distance. Also, 10cm width, seems pretty wide if the length is 27. If you are indeed 10cm, you'll probably need a boot that is wider. 32 Lashed and Nike Kaijus I know are wider boots.

Don't size up your boots to get more width. Look for a boot that is wider. Good luck.
