Will this waist width work with my boots??

So I'm wanting to pick up a Forum Destroyer 152 to increase my fun factor in the park. I'm well within the weight range for this board, but the waist width for this board is 24.6cm. I have a size 10 boot that's pretty low profile, but I've never ridden anything that narrow. I duck out my stance to +18 -15 for park riding. I'm looking for opinions on whether it will be too narrow... Thanks in advance!

With your feet ducked like that you shouldn't have problems but if you ever straighten em out a bit you could get some drag in real sharp turns.

Depends on your stance width too, but with those angles and mostly park oriented, I think your fine

That's perfectly fine. Remember that the waist width doesn't tell the whole story. The binding insert points are on a wider section of the board. So your feet are likely sitting on at least 25cm.

With that said, I have size 10 boots and two of my three boards have a waist width under 25cm.

I prefer the width to be under 25cm because that means the sidecut is a little more aggressive which is nice for edge power and carving.
