First of all, I'm sorry for probably being the 10000th idiot coming up with such a thread, but in my case I would like some help on choosing a board.
Let me explain... Just got back from Austria, it was awesome and all that but, as I experienced last year, the rental boards were not wide enough for my huuuuuge feet(EU size 48.5, according to some website that would be US 14.6...) Well you probably get the problem already anyway; toe drag(that's what it's called, right?). Last year it wasn't such a problem but now I do more carving and steeper slopes it gets kind of annoying to lose control over your board and faceplant into some icy slope. Rentals suck for not caring about me.
So, I'd probably need a freeride board, though I think I'd prefer allmountain as I would love to ride pow aswel as do some park stuff. What do you think would be some good boards for me? I do not own a money-shitting donkey or something like that, I think the most I'd pay for a board(without bindings etc) would be 400EUROS, so that would be around 500USD. Preferably a bit cheaper though(but it also depends on how far I can get my parents ghehe).
I know I am not going to get a straight answer as to which board I should choose, but some suggestions as to what brands I should avoid and what brands are decent would be great. Are there allmountain boards wide enough for my feet? Also, if you happen to be from the Netherlands, recommending a good board shop would be much appreciate too. And as for stance, I prefer not to have my back foot pointing all the way forward, just slightly forward is okay with me, but that would'nt be much of a difference compared to being parallel to the board.
Thanks in advance guys, and I am sorry for probably sounding stupid. I didn't know what else to do than to go here though...
