Another noob question!
So I'm 5'11", 230lbs, size 11 boots, and under many people's advice, purchased a 163W Sims board. I spoke with another guy, however, at a shop, and he told me that size 11 you don't need a wide board. Does it really make that much of a difference? I just bought the board to see how I liked snowboarding, and am willing to invest more at a later time if it's something I'm more serious about.
I also tried on a pair of Burton Hail boots, and sized up for 11. Then, on the internet, I've found size 11.5 for only $130 shipped. Will it make a big difference do you think? And if so, I'd probably need the wide board right?
