wide board with size 10.5 that has shrinkage tech
 
EDIT: TITLE SAYS 11, BUT IT'S ACTUALLY 10.5. I'M FROM EUROPE SO I MADE A CONVERSION MISTAKE.

i didn't think about this but i bought skate banana 156w, even though i have a size 10.5 boot, with shrinkage tech (burton moto). did i make a mistake?

and i prefer an honest answer over one that'll make me feel better :P

I know i read some place that a reg skatebanana is a mid wide and can be used with 11 boots. 156 and up once u go to a 152 the waist width starts to get little more narrow

so my board is basically too wide? fuck my life.

edit: i've researched a bit, and from what i gathered a size 10.5 + needs a 26cm waist-width, and my 156w is at 26.5 cm. so with my shrinkage tech boot i think a normal width would have been just on the line. i guess if my board feels too sluggish i'll just need to get a 10.5 without shrinkage tech, and i think i'll be okay.

I could be wrong i never owned a banana but i been doing reading because i been thinking bout getting one to.i boight a gnu carbon credit last year and i to bought a wide cause i wear 11 boots and the cc is same way as banana on waist widths i think.

Pretty much. Typically you only need a wide with a size 12+ foot, certain boards will vary. Good news for the future, you don't need a wide board

i read that a 26 cm waist-width is recommended for a size 10.5+. a normal width banana is at 25,5, so wouldn't have been enough, according to what i read. i'd rather have too wide than too slim :)

Actual foot size is what's really important. Additionally boards are wider then the waist measurement at the insert packs. Wiredsport has a good post/tutorial about it somewhere on the forum, it may have been stickied.

Example: T.Rice is considered a midwide and is 25.8 at 157.

Thats what i was guna say.the reg banana would be fine but the wide just has only little more width to be on safe side . Just found this topic http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...-159-wide.html

You're bindings don't look like they're adjusted right. Your boot look like it is sitting forward of the heel cup. A pic of the base with the boots in the bindings will give a better idea of correct placement on the board. From your pics you might be to far toe side with your bindings.
