T.rice size?

Hi!
I've been snowboarding for around seven years. And just bought the new T.rice pro 164.5.
However, I've been worrying about it being too long for me. I am 6' 4" and weigh around 190lbs. I also have 12.5 shoes, however i'm looking to replace them with a shrinkage tech boot. I will mainly be doing freeride and powder. I sometimes go into the park, however not often at all.
So do you think i'm buying the right size?

EDIT: I can also say that i'm only like 17 so i will probably gain som weight

Should be fine, especially freeriding & pow

Have you already bought it or are about to?

I wear size 12 with a stance of +15/-12 and don't have issues with boot clearance. 262 waist width. Also my boots are 12 years old, so they're probably couple inches longer than the boots with foot reduction. No worries man!

P.s. I don't know the waist width of the rice pro.

Tell the truth, even if it leads to your death. - For the truth will set you free.

At 190 poiunds, you should have no problem with the 164 for your kind of riding.

I'm your same size and have last years 164.5 and love it. Works great for prettymuch everything I want it to do and is a blast in pow.

What do you think about the width? I measured my foot and it's only 29 cm and my shoe size 12, in short words 30 cm. So do you think i can go down a few sizes on the shoes too? my current shoes are also kind of big und bulky...

You'll be fine with the size 12 for the 164.5. Remember the waist width is the narrowest point on the board, not actually where your boots will be. You won't likely be riding a 0* binding angle so you gain room there too. I wouldn't size down on boots, buy ones that fit properly. Sore, achy feet are not fun and ruin your day fast.

EDIT: I've got Salomon F series boot which is their version of small footprint. if you go with those in a size 12 I'm sure you'll have no problem at all width wise. Make sure to try on the boot first though.
