Wide board mix up

So I recently ordered a lib tech dark series board 155. Well when it showed up i got the wide by mistake. The company will give me a full refund but I am second guessing sending it back. I ride mostly freestyle love powder but don't get to the back country much. I'm 5'8 140 and boot size 11. I have done research on the lib tech wides. But would like a second oppion on if I should send it back and get a regular. Thanks for your time

Take photos of how much overhang there is with your boot in the binding and the binding on the board.

No other way to tell

Wiredsport would actually tell ya to stand on the board barefoot. I believe I read that if your foot extends ever so slightly over the base front and back, with your normal riding angles, you're good. This isn't about toe/heel drag but leverage.

The waist width of the 158 is a 26.1 where as the waist width of the 158W is 26.3. Anything with a 26 waist with or higher would be plenty enough room for those feet brah.

stick with the wide, the regular is 24.7 from what i remember lookin it up 2 minutes ago and the wide is 25.1, just stick with the wide, it'd be better for less toe/heel drag

I think it best to just stick your foot on there since you have it. Waist width can mean anything depending on how they cut their sides
