Default Question about Gnu Carbon Credit board and boot size..please read

ok so long story short i am getting a replacement board from a company and my local shop will trade it for a Gnu Carbon Credit Series in 147..which is the board ive been looking into...i am wondering about the width of the board compared to my boot size...ive read a million things online about how wide boards should be and get a million diff answeres....the board i am getting is 147 in length and the width is 24.2....what is the recommended boot size for this board...i have size 10 boots and my feet arent gonna grow anymore so ill be at a 10 forever prob...so is a size 10 technically too big for the width of this board..please help me out..thanks

EDIT:.... also i was just looking on the Rome website and most of their boards with a length of 147 have a waist width of 246....how does this translate to the gnu which i guess is in cm...? really would like to know how to compare the 2...

246 mm would be 24.6 cm...so it's wider than the GNU. How tall are you and how much do you weigh? Men's 10? I ask because given the boot size I'm guessing the 147 is pretty small for you, though I could be completely wrong of course.

In regards to 24.2 and a size 10 boot it will depend on stance width and angles...but your on the edge I would say.

my buddy has sz 12 boots and rides a reg width board with zero problems...so i would think a sz 10 boot on that board should be totally fine, especially with a ducked out stance

I have size ten boots and look for boards with a 25 cm waist or a little wider. I like to lay down carves and get boot drag on smaller boards. 24.2 is really small for size tens even if they are low volume.

Some people make do with a skinny board but I prefer a wider one, my 159 skate banana is 25.5 and feels right on to me.
