If you are one of those guys who is 5'3 with 7 1/2's trying to justify riding a wide board then that is silly.

I used to ride with heel over hang but my toes within the edge of my board (toe under hang I guess) before I bought new bindings - it was due to the fact I have small feet and I preferred a more customized width in my stance than having feet dead center on the board.


Since switching to my new bindings where I can do both, I haven't noticed any difference.

On another note, I've also ridden 168wide boards where I haven't had much trouble - and I definitely had no overhang on either side of that board. It's obviously slower, but wasn't a huge problem. It might pay to explain your stats like boot size, height, weight and the board you're wondering this about for.

Sorry. I wear a 7.5 boot and my board width is 25.2 i believe. Might be wrong. I looked at the Waist Width?

I wear a US 7.5 boot with a board waist width of about 24.5 cm and I have some overhang.

Anyway you're not talking extreme numbers so you'll be fine.

got size 7's, my preference is 23.75-24 cause I like quick edge to edge and have never had an issue with overhang, can easily manage 25 but 26> gets to be cumbersome and slow edge to edge.

Thanks guys. My feet are about 25.4 cm long. So.. I should be fine on the slopes. Might have a little of a slow edge to edge transition?

You're fine. I wear 7.5 no problem on 150 cm to 153 boards. The widest I rode was 153 coda. NO problem controlling it.
