Default Would I be able to getaway with this?

I'm 5'11, 130lb, and have a shoe size of 10.5.

Now I was wanting a new board for getting into freestyle and some park. I I was thinking of getting a board in the 150cm-152cm range. But all the boards I found that where 150-152 all seemed like they had a really small Waist size. For example, I was searching NS and the EVO. But the Evo 151 only has a waist of 24.3 (as what is said on the website). If I could get away with that it would be good.

I also searched up the NS Revolver 153 which has a waist of 26.0 (as what is said on the website), but I was shooting for something smaller in length.

Any Help, or Suggestions (on boards or other options) would be very very greatly appreciated!

going from a 151 to a 153 probably wouldnt be a hugeee deal, i think riding on that narrow of a board would be worse

My flow era 152 has a waist width of 25cm and my specs are 5'10" 120lbs and size 10 and the heel toe over hang is perfect.

Hope that helped at all.

it depends on how wide you set the bindings and the angle. also the length of your boots. freestyle boards tend to be narrower than most other types of boards you might need a wide.

ps dont forget the lettuce and onions

I normally ride boards in the 24cm waist range and I used to have very bulky size 10 boots. Those were from 2008. Any newer boot will likely be lower profile than my 10's.

Now, you have to consider this... the waist width is the measurement at the most narrow point of the board. Your feet don't stand on this point. Your feet will be sitting on top of the binding inserts. The board is actually wider at these points.

Also keep in mind that angles also affect the overhang. If you have a ducked stance, the more angle you rock, the less overhang you will get.

Moral of the story? I'm 90% sure you're good to go. 10% unsure because different overhang strokes for different warthog people.
