HI Looboo. What are you riding then? I am almost exactly the same size as you and had issues with my Goliath being too wide and was told on here and by the instructor in Bulgaria that i was having probs with responsiveness. I am now looking at trying a narrower set up which might mean getting a board made for the boobied ones.

Unfortunately Bataleon don't appear to make their girly boards any thinner and i love their tech. :-(

My snowboard is the Quiksilver Daggers. After buying it at 50% off at my local Sportchek, I realized I couldn't find any info on it online. Thus I measured the width with a tape measure. The width is about 25.2cm.

I should also note that my boots are size 7.5 US. It strikes me odd how well they fit even though I wear size 6 Converse shoes.

I think as long as you don't get a board specifically made to be wide, you should be fine.

Looking up the specs on the Goliath, if you are riding the 153, your waist width will be at 24.5, which, imo is fine.
