I don't know, size 8 may be pushing it. Try to demo if you can.

The Trice 153 has a waist width of 253, which is pretty much the same.

For the record, an inch is equal to 25.4 millimeters and a millimeter is 0.03937007874015748 inches. So that's really not a whole lot.

if you want a good board for riding pow, pick up a pow specific board, i picked up a charlie slasher for 320 bucks at my shop, other good ones would be the jones hovercraft, salomon powder snake, and next years battalion camel toe, all those are right at 400 bucks and i would say its worth it, they make powder much easier and more fun. There will probably be some killer deals on these boards at the end of this season too.
i see i see, thanks for the suggestions. i checked lib's website, they say the banana magic 157 is 254 mm =S , and t rice 157 is 258mm, should i still look for a smaller size?? I have size 8.5 boots btw

All have a narrower waist than the T.Rice. Don't get me wrong, I love the board but it's a bit of work to turn if you're not maching...
