Wide Board Blues
"You need a wide board dude", "No, a 255 will fit a size 14 nicely", "wide, wide, wide!". At this point I'm lost in a sea of thoughts concerning what board to buy. I got a local shop to create a fully custom board from the ground up, with graphics not found anywhere else on earth (badass right?). I need a light weight board for park, superpipe, and freestyle, yet strong enough to handle larger spins (like really big). So the shop owner (who is a very chill and nice guy all around) told me that a 163cm with a 25.5cm waist would fit a size 14. WiredSport (A company I'd recommend to anyone) said that would fit also. Now back to shop dude. He also would come with a carbon-fiber strip down the middle of the core to elimnate vibration and increase strength (A useful feature). Now if I do go with custom board I shell out 300-500, the board is one-of-a-kind, etc. But I really need input on this troubling matter. For reference I included pics with my Nidecker Axis with K2 CTS (XL) and Ride Anthem (15) boots.
