Waist width for a size 13 boot?

I wear size 13 k2 domain boots, and am looking to purchase a board that seems absolutely perfect for me, however it has a waist width of 25.1cm. I am a little concerned about the board being too narrow. I do ride all the way out on a standard mounting system. Thanks

I'm 6'3" with size 12-13 boots depending on the brand. I've ridden a 255mm (25.5cm) waist width board and it was fine. I would try and see if one of your buddies has a board with a similar waist width to check it out for yourself.

I got US 13 too, and my board's waist is more then 26cm. NS Legacy-R 174. Better get a Palmer Plates or Buton Elevators if you wanna go low in your carves. That does make a big difference.

I have a size 13 too and I wont even consider anything under a 26. In my opinion if its going to be called a "wide" board the minimum width it should be is 26.

I have 13's, what Yes Officer said, don't go under 25.50

Also depends on your bindings. Some brands, Burton, Union, ect. Lift you off the board a little giving you more leverage.

Thumbs up

6',160lb,size 13. I just bought myself a Flow Verve 155w (26.4w). It fits great, not heel or toes sticking out. My last board was a 25.5, to be honest it wasn't that bad, almost no drag on that too. Just get a wide board, something around 26 or more.
Cheers!
