NJ SHREDDER 28 Yea for your foot size, build, and skill level you should see if you can find a Burton King at a local shop and see if they'll let you demo it

NJ SHREDDER 28 I dont understand your length to American boot size conversion, so I cant help you to much. However, if you need a true wide board and are at entry level in snowboaring and want a board that you can progess on, look into a Burton King

Flick Montana Some shops let you try out boards. They let you use loaners for a season. It's a nice way to check something out if you're in a transition period between boards.

If you don't have the option, you can always go with the no brainers. There are some boards that are always good choices. Usually cost more, though.

Kieran problem is, there is no shops which sell good boards around, only 3 hours away :P

+ these shops only open in winter.

So i will most probably end up buying one up there when the season starts.

Flick Montana Just out of curiosity, what do you mean by overhang? You do actually want your toe and heel to hang over the board by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch each. If you don't have some overhang, you'll have a dandy of a time with handling. A wide board should be plenty big enough to fit pretty much even the biggest feet.

Also, the internet is awesome for BUYING a board, but lousy for shopping for one. If you can try one out at a shop THEN buy it online, you'll have a lot more luck finding what suits you.

Snowjoe Internets great so long as you know exactly what you want when you order. In your case I'd definatly recommend going to a shop and just having a chat with the people there about it.

Kieran another question that just came to mind:

if im buying my first board do you think its better to buy it at a shop so i can actually see the thing or buy it online??

I only ordered a skateboard from the internet once because even tho it was a pro board it had a sh*t concave so since then i always bought them from shops so i could check out their shape first-hand. It is the same with snowboards??
