Size 11 boot. Time to get wide?
First and foremost
all mountain - Midwest snowpack/ice crap mostly. All mountain mainly with some minor boxes if I've got a clear run at them
Now, with a size 11 boot I'm not sure what's a smarter decision. I've skateboarded and wake-boarded for years so I have pretty good balance. I like to ride all over, but plan on slowly working some freestyle into my runs. Probably avoid the park unless there's a nice low box to it.
The question comes to this: Do I go for a somewhat shorter board and go wide for the extra clearance, or should I get a longer board for all mountain and not worry about the wide.
Example: 158 Wide or 161+ regular.
I'm already pretty certain on what board I want to get, but I'm looking for people's preference on longer and regular or shorter and wide. I can't see myself going switch a lot, but I will be at times. And I'd say I'm not a total charger, but do like to power into some runs. I do plan on working on ground freestyle (butters and popped airs)
