I mid wide is most likely going to be far to wide for size 8 boots. I wear size nines and I know it would be to wide for me. With that being said I am on my phone and can't check the board specs at the moment.

The 153 has a 25.3 waist width. I agree, probably too wide for size 8 boot.

My GNU Street 149 is has a waist of 25... Is .3 make much of a difference? what would be the drawback of the board being too wide?

Would I be better off going with the 150cm at 24.7 width for all mountain?

slower edge to edge...

that is why you center you bindings and boot so in a perfect world you have some overhang on both sides of the board...so the board will listen all the input that the body is giving,and no need of overcompensating for it !!!

Don't do it. Go for a more narrow board with slightly more flex. T. Rice is too much board. TRS would be way better for intermediate-advanced and is still stiff enough.

I have a T. Rice and it really is a advanced-expert big mountain freestyle machine. I thought I needed it, but the NS Proto was a much better fit for me, and I consider myself advanced.
