Please help me understand boot size/board width. Am I on the right size?
Please forgive if this can be found elsewhere as this is my first post and I am just starting to dig through this forum (great stuff).
I wear a size 12 boot. I just moved to a pair of Burton Ions so, in theory, I have a slightly smaller footprint now too.
When I upgraded my board last year, the guy at the board shop basically said I should be looking at a wide board (then on a traditional 12 boot). So, taking advantage of the clearance and my first board purchase in 10 years I picked up a 158w 2012 riders choice.
Now I'm wondering if I should be back on a longer board (my last was a 164) but I don't really understand what is/isn't available to me. What do I need to look for here? I'm thinking I'd like to get off the wide board sizes if I don't need to be here....
I am 6'3" and 190 btw. Probably smack dab in the middle of intermediate skill level.... Maybe.
Thanks in advance!
