Leo That's perfectly fine. Remember that the waist width doesn't tell the whole story. The binding insert points are on a wider section of the board. So your feet are likely sitting on at least 25cm.

With that said, I have size 10 boots and two of my three boards have a waist width under 25cm.

I prefer the width to be under 25cm because that means the sidecut is a little more aggressive which is nice for edge power and carving.

init Depends on your stance width too, but with those angles and mostly park oriented, I think your fine

mbesp With your feet ducked like that you shouldn't have problems but if you ever straighten em out a bit you could get some drag in real sharp turns.

Will this waist width work with my boots??

So I'm wanting to pick up a Forum Destroyer 152 to increase my fun factor in the park. I'm well within the weight range for this board, but the waist width for this board is 24.6cm. I have a size 10 boot that's pretty low profile, but I've never ridden anything that narrow. I duck out my stance to +18 -15 for park riding. I'm looking for opinions on whether it will be too narrow... Thanks in advance!
