you will probably be ok. it really depends on the shell size of your boot.

You should be good, especially if you have a boot with a reduced footprint design, like some Burtons and Salomons.

Heads up that the WW on the BSOD is sort of deceptive because it's measured right where the Death Grip contact point is.

Ah good point i hadnt even considered that! ive got a pair of northwave boots at the moment which i feel have a realatively small footprint so i guess ill just have to try it out and hope for the best. sure hope it works because ive been eyeing the BSOD for 4-5 seasons now! haha

Are those the right numbers? I don't see how 0.1cm aka 1mm of difference in waist width would make any difference whatsoever.

does the waist spec on the BSOD include the "death grip" contact point? I don't know how large exactly is the death grip contact point but I figure it could account for half a centimeter or so, meaning the true waist width of the board could be more like 255 or 254mm. If this is the case then it's not a "wide" because the entire running length of the board isn't spec'd as a wide, it's just this little bump in the waist.

why dont you contact them and ask for a measurement, then compare that to the measurement of your boots. Takes out the gamble and guesswork

IIRC they are measuring that with the death grip, inflating the width. Which is a bummer, because if the made the Totally FK'n Awesome in wide I'd be all over that.
