Default Total newbie question about boards and bindings

I'm a beginner but I figured I'd get a board to make things easier. I'm looking at getting a Burton Blunt 158. I'm 5'10" and about 190 lbs with a muscular build.

One thing that's confusing me is that when I look on the Burton site for the Blunt's sizing guidelines it says for the 158 cm board "Binding Sizes: Large." What does this mean? Does it mean I can only use large bindings with this board, or is that like the max size the board can support? I know I'll probably need medium size bindings since I wear a size 9.5 boot.

I find this is confusing but my interpretation is that it applies in only one direction, ie. for smaller board sizes the chart tells you the max binding size, you can't put a large binding on a small board.

I think that if it says large binding is ok then you can put med or small binding on the board. If you're trying to put a small binding on a board that will take a large this would imply that you're either a big guy with small feet or you're looking at a board that is bigger/wider than you need. I ride medium bindings on burton boards that say large in the size chart (i'm a size 10), and I am pretty sure that I've got the right size stuff.

Great, that's exactly what I wanted to know. I thought that the large rating was like a "max" size rating too, so that I can still hook up med bindings to it. It's a bit weird though since the Blunt 158 is a normal width board, but I'm guessing it should work fine since yours seems to be okay.
