Width Wide v. Reg

I wear a size 13 boot and have always ridden a wide because it seemed like the thing to do. Well i just bought a reg board and THINK it is too small. Would you advise against me even thinking about using it?

That is definatly a snowboard you've got there... I have size ten boots and get toe drag on some boards, with 13 id look for a wide board with a 26 cm waiste, they make wide boards for people with big feet, you don't wear size 10 shoes even if you can cram your feet into them. If you never carve or ride steep shit then it doesn't matter as much.

hahahaha my thoughts exactly.

dude, mount ur bindings and put ur boots in them. then take a pic and post that showing the overhang at the edges.

most likely it is too small... you could always duck ur bindings out like crazy

I'm not even mounting the bindings. I put the board back in the box and sealed it. The board was going to be strictly park, flat land, which is what my wide board is for. I just liked the design of this one and had to have it.

Thanks for confirming what i knew. Wide for me

I ride a size 13 boot and rode a 157 last season. No wide, just regular. It worked fine for me. I do have a 159w that I am on this season though. It also works just fine for me. Honestly, that Bataleon would probably work for you. Especially for park and flat land. Best way to tell IMO though, is to mount it up and throw in the boots. Otherwise, it's all just speculation.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I speculated that i wanted the money back in my pocket since i do have a park board already. There's a demo day at the mountain this weekend to i'll grab a reg board and see how i feel. Maybe i'll repurchase the board
