Burton Ambush 2013

First post on the forum, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Just bought a pair of Burton Ambush boots in 11.5, the shrinkage tech supposedly puts my footprint around size 11. About to get a new board as well, and I would like to avoid having to get a Wide.

What is the maximum Waist Width that i could get away with if i wanted to stick with a regular board? ive got my eyes on a board that has a WW of 25.5 and is designed with duck stance in mind, which is my stance as well.

I want to avoid toe drag at all costs, and i want to know if the boots/setup will make it possible for me to ride a regular board.

Don't just go with waist width when looking at a potential board. What really counts is the width at the inserts (varies with sidecut!) you would be using, and also the stance.

Anyways, with an 11.5 Ambush you should be fine on most of the boards with a waist from around 25.3 cm. Depends on the board of course but that's a general marker, at least from my point of view.

Alright thanks for the Input. The board i have been lookin at has different sidecuts; 8.3 and 7.5; think that will be kosher?
