Need new board, got big feet
Hey everyone i need some serious advice. Im lookin to buy my first board. One major problem tho, I have size 14 feet, which can only make for huge boots. I have been off the hills for about a year, but before that, my toes and heels were causing some nasty lowside wipeouts on hard turns because of their dragging and even lifting the edge off the snow. Here's a little about me. I've been snowboarding since i was about 9, all rentals up till now. Im 19, 6'2" and 200 pounds. Like i said i have 14 feet, and i was wondering if anyone had advice on how to fix the problem, wider board suggestions, binding risers, anything. I like to ride a 50 50 mix of speed carving runs and getting some grabs in the park and pipe. Right now im getting into snowkiting cuz at college here in east north dakota, there are no hills lol. But my point is, im already on a tight budget and i honestly dont want an expensive board because i know im going to nick it up on stumps and rocks in the fields already. I can use all the advice you have on size estimates, binding types, foot size solutions, and maybe a company that is know for their wide boards. Thanks for your help.
