I think you are fine with 250! I have size 15 feet and ride a board with 265 waist, even though it is a little too narrow for me I do not experience any limitations.
If the board is too wide the side-to-side response will not be as good.

Newbie help with board waist width
Hello, newbie boarder here - did it a couple times on rental equipment and just decided to get my own. I was hoping you guys can comment on the waist width on a board I am looking at. It is a 158 cm board with waist width of 250 mm. As I am new, I am not sure my ideal stance but fair to assume that I will be starting similar to typical rentals, probably duck feet 12 degree or so I think. My boot size is a us11 Burton Moto which has shrinkage tech.
Is my waist width likely to be ok or should I get a wide or mid ride? Any comments appreciated
