Your review was a big reason why I bought it. Sounds like it's a great ride, wish my damn feet fitYeah, your foot size is going to be an issue on the Billy Goat. For others looking at picking this board up, I can attest to the fact that as a directional twin, this board rides great switch. It's the only split board I have ridden so far that I can comfortably ride switch for long stretches on steep back country terrain. It's resort counterpart also rides superbly switch. A really great all mountain board for riders with small feet especially!
