No not really unless you never carve a turn, look for boards with 26 or more waist widths

Listen to Walove. He speaks truth. I have a size 13 and have ridden boards with tiny waists. It's no fun. Find one that fits you proper. You won't regret it.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I wear a size 13 Salomon F22 (pretty damn small footprint) and ride a 259mm waist with no problems. And i'm a freeride/carving guy. I've seen people with clunkier size 11 boots that are bigger than my F22 13s

Wide boards rock, even if you don't need one.

Depending on how wide your stance is and what board it is you may be able to stuff 13s on a board with 25.3. I have 13s and have fit on boards with waist widths that small. Personally, I prefer 25.7-26.1 and avoid widths bigger than that.

Also Depends on your Bindings and the type of riding you are doing.

I have size 13's and ride boards as narrow as 25.50 with 15/15 angles.

If you are riding steeps, get a wider board, if you are just jibbing you can get away with a skinnier waist width.
