In addition to my previous post for board suggestions... with 11.5 flow hylite boots, would a board with a 255 waist be okay?

In looking at the lib tech hot knife which I was leaning towards it the 158 has a 25.5cm waist.

Not sure if I would have toe drag or not...

Most bindings lift the boot high enough off the board that you should have enough clearance with a 25.5cm. And any bindings that fit a 11.5 should fit a 25.5 waist regardless of radius. But I wouldn't go less than that.

Good to know, thanks.

It's interesting, a 25.5cm seems to be in the mid width range, where 26.5cm is wide. The difference is very small, 1cm. Which means the board is half a cm wider on each of the toe and heel sides, or less than a quarter of an inch.

Hard to conceive that with everything else going on that can be the difference between toe dragging or not!

You'll fit fine on it. I'd ride it with my size 13's and be fine. Try not to overthink it. ;)
