I've recently bought this board with the specs 158 Wide. After compairing it to my older board, Forum The Lander 160 Mid-Wide, I'm kinda curious how this can be called a wide board, as my old one is actually wider.
So, what's the criteria to call it a wide board, and how can someone know how wide, and if it's actually wider than something they've already got?

Every company has their own standard of wide-mid wide, Any board that is 25 cm or higher is going to be a wide board. I do know that the Lander was wider than that by a bit but Forum does not make free ride boards anymore. I think the widest board they make is the is a youngblood 159W it is 25.9 cm wide
