well if you are sill growing I would not get it. But either way with a 11+ size foot you should get a wide board, you are just better off.

By the way what is your height and how long is this board?

Hummm, I would say a purely freestyle board would be a 159 and if you plan a little freeride in it maybe a 161-164. Actually 25.2 mid width is good for you if your boots are 11 I am not sure about 11.5 but it might stil be ok. What board is it? it might actually work ok for you.

I know this is contradictory to my first post, but I researched a little and figured that mid with would be fine, a little wider would be better, but 255 is a good call.

Also depending how you set your stance you can avoid some drag

How old are you?

Yes risers would help, but it's said that risers make you lose some control of the board. I would rather get myself a wide board than riser.

HUmmm, to be honest the 16 scares me , you still have a few years of growing and you are going at a fast rate. If you were not going to grow more I would say yes the board is fine for your (granted I know nothing about this board). But if you feel that might grow more then no. This is the thing as far as height and weight the board can take a few extra pounds and inches, but if your feet grow another inch then you would need to get risers.

I guess it comes down to what you think is right. It's sort of a pain in the ass, because you don't want to get a bigger board either specially for park, what if you don't grow more... then you're fucked.

But yeah like I said for the present stats the board should be fine. You have a little thinking to do.

Are you parents taller than you?

Damn kid you are intense .

I would say yes, but never make a decision on one opinion only. If I was you I would wait for input of other members. Weekends tend to be slow, you might get some more responses tomorrow and on.

Good luck with your purchase
