i have size 11's on a regular board. kind of wondering if there are any particular advantages or disadvantages of wide. a guy at a local board shop said he kind of likes a wide board as he felt it was a little easier for boxes....bull?
Definitely the wide. Looking at the spec sheet even the 158 regular is 250mm waist width which is pretty narrow. The 158w is a 256mm which is really more of a mid wide than a full on wide anyways. I wear an 11 boot and I wouldn't go anything narrower than 254 personally. 256mm won't feel sluggish at all edge to edge and with 250 you stand the risk of toe drag.
