A wider board is going to be more stable than a narrower board. The negative is that they are slower edge-to-edge.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

i would say go wide, if your feet need a wide get one. some people rag out wide boards but they are made for a reason

switching from "heel side" to "toe side". switching from heel side to toe side.

stay away if you can get away with it, if not, rage one. like someone else mentioned, they are made for a reason.

the bottom line is a wide board is more board and more board will always ride differently than a regular deck. slower edge to edge, somewhat heavier, sometimes a different radius/less sidecut, not much opportunity for a taper in the tail, etc. you have to weigh those issues on the hill... some may not even notice those nuances and others can stand it.

demo both and go from there if the opportunity comes up.
