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?

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.
I wear a size 11.5 and ride a 258mm board
