little reassurance on mid wide
Hey guys, first time thread for me, I recently bought a custom flying v 2013 158W. I'm 5"11, weigh about 85kg and intermediate level snowboarder. Brit living and riding south island of NZ, mt hutt, queenstown, wanaka and a few club fields.
I have size 10 US feet, measuring in at 27cm using the wall to bare foot longest toe measuring system I saw on this forum. The board width at the inserts on my 12, -12 angle I ride is 27.1 Now I know the board is a little bit small for my weight but I wanted something a little easier to throw around and play on around the mountain while my girlfriend is learning on the mellow slopes.
I went mid wide because my other board is a cambered 159 Jussi '09 which has the process shape and I believe is also mid wide though is a little thinner (2-3mm) when I put them together, but for whatever reason (maybe my old moto's are big) I still have a decent 3/4 inch overhang on that.
So what I'm asking is
1.Was this a good board to buy for what I want to do? Butters, 180's, 360's, bit of off piste powder etc (Please no Burton hate, I like the company and the boards have treated me better than others I have tried over the 6 years I have been riding).
2. Is the mid wide going to be an issue? should I get a 160 regular width instead for the above? or just use my jussi for carving and ice and 158 CFV for playing about in park and nice conditions?
3. If I get some new boots with the reduced footprint will that effect any of the above?
Sorry for the long first post, looking forward to your feedback.
