Is a Ride Fleetwood too wide for 10.5?
In a Craigslist goggle deal gone mad, I picked up a ridden once Ride Fleetwood 158 with Burton Progression bindings for $100. I knew it was a pretty well respected board, and figured the price was right, but didn't realize it was a "wide" board until I got home. My feet are anywhere from 10-11 depending on boot, so I guess it might be a little wide. My last pair were 10's, but I am getting new ones, and in everything I wear 10.5 seems to be the average.
So what difference does the wide part make in handling? Is this going to make the board more difficult to maneuver or turn? I'd like to think it would make it more stable for a beginner like me, but that would just be dumb luck.
