Default What are some wide boards?

I`m looking for a wide board (first board). I wear size 13 boots. I have looked at the Burton Custom wide (260mm waist width). What other companies make wide boards? Do they go bigger than 260mm? Are other companies boards as good/better than the Custom? Any help you guys could give will be greatly appreciated. In case it helps I am 180cm (6ft), 85kg (185lbs), beginner/average boarder, mainly like slopes with some park (not into pipe). Thanks again.

Most brands make at least one dedicated wide board, or at least a wide version of another board. Just check out all the manufacturer's sites and scope 'em out. See which one suits your riding style and narrow down the options. I also wear size 13s... and since I'm a beginner, I wanted an all-mountain board, so I got myself a nice deal on an Endeavor Live 158W... 26.1 cm waist width.

i would check out never summer if i were you. their wide boards have some of the biggest waist widths i've ever heard of (like 26.7-26.9 cm). that, and i hear nothing but good things about their boards. snowblower is right though, most brands make at least one wide board with a 26 cm + waist width. i really like my santa cruz wide board (26.5 cm waist), but i think these days they really only have one wide option.

If you're looking for a beginners board, you may want to look at the burton bullet: The people in my local board store said it is a good beginner board- Plenty of flex and can handle speeds.
