Unhappy What about waist width?

Like I said I think im gonna go with the Jamie Lynn. However at 160cm the waist width of the board is 257mm as opposed to the Billy Goat 162cm at 253mm waist width. Am I gonna have a problem with the Jamie Lynn being too wide? My shoe size is a 10 US with low profile Salomon dialogue boots. I am 6'1" and weight 176 pounds. What do you guys think? I know lots of you guys have the T.Rice 161.5 which has a wist width of 160mm. I am now worried that it is too wide and I'm gonna have to return it.

Either one will be fine. But as I said in my last post, the BG will be somewhat quicker edge-to-edge, but depending on your riding the impact might be small.

Enough to be negligible? I just want to make sure I'm making the right choice. I want this board to last for 3-4 years.

go to a shop that has both boards, take your boots and put your boots on the board where you'd put your bindings and see how they fit. But size 10 and only 4mm difference...not going to matter much imho...ur going to be fine

...but idk I got size 7 feet and 25.0 is my limit for waist width....and prefer a 24-24.75....though my Charlie Slasher 164 is 26.0

The Jamie Lynn has a straighter side cut so it will be about the same width at the inserts

SHRED HAPPENS

Received the board yesterday in the mail, it fits perfectly. In fact with my boots I have 1" over hang on either side. Shoes off I have about a 1cm over hang at 15/-15 deg at the inserts with heels at the edge. I love the graphics of this board! Can't wait to get out and try it. Unfortunately, I will be in Arizona until December. Hopefully Arizona sunrise will have some good snow this year!
