Also in regards to width, i measured accross the inserts where my bindings would be and its 27.4CM And my barefoot just measure 28.5. So at 0degrees there is a 9mm overhang.
Does this sound about right for my footsize? This is on the wide board?

|henno32||Id say i was intermediate level, ideally i would like to do a bit of everything with the board. I could either swap it for a 161 regular or a 160 Wide. Is it best to just put my barefoot on the board and see if it reaches the edges?|

it depends what you want to do with it and your skill, in MY OPINION it is too big. I am 6'3 and 210 and ride a 158 proto. I ride that in almost all conditions other then 18+ inches of fresh powder. so IMO i think you could/should size down. Also you dont really need a wide but that is a different story.
Rides website says which size boots fit which bindings. If you fall in the range then you are fine.

Help with Board size and Width
I got my first board for christmas, Its a Ride Manic 164W. However i am not sure if it is slightly too big for me. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
I wear a size UK 11 boot. My barefoot measures at 28cm. I Weigh 177 pounds. And I am 6ft 1 tall.
I measured the board at the inserts and it is also 28CM. Would this board be to wide for me?
The bindings i got for it ( Ride EX ) are XL, Would you recommend i went with a large? I Havnt ever set a board up before so i am unsure what angle i will have the bindings. I havn't bought boots yet.
The boards i normally rent are size 160.. So i dont know whether this board would be too big for me.
I mainly just ride groomers/terrain and powder on the mountain however i do use the park occasionally.
Also i cant try the board to see if its ok because if it turns out to be too big then i can't return it for a smaller size.
If anyone could help that would be awesome
