Don't get risers of any kind man. The burton ones especially suck balls its cheap plastic they just break so easily.

It may not be an option but I think you would be better off getting a wide board instead of using risers on a narrow board. I would say that most boards and bindings are not engineered with the use of risers in mind.

well...i dont have the money to do that so i really am stuck with either having my heels and toes sticking into the snow or getting some risers. Again, does anyone know of any other types of binding risers than the Burton ones?

How about widening your stance and/or increasing the angle of you bindings? Other than that I think Burton may be one of a handful of companies that produce a riser.

How narrow is your frigging stance and how narrow is this board? I used to ride boards with low 24 widths with a 19 inch stance and a size 12 boot and never had issues.
