hi there, im 6'1 and have a size 12 boot, and im 85kg (190 lbs), do i NEED a wide? i like the longer boards, i wanna get a 159, but there are no wide's left, unless i buy a new one for 30% more. how much wider are the wides compared to the normals? or could i get a 156?

Hey Dude,
For a size 12 boot i would go with a wider board, why because catching an edge isn't a worry but massive toe or heel overhang can be a pain in the park or on groomers. I have a good buddy thats a 13 boot size and he swears by the 156 wide skate banana. As for the size of the board if you normally ride a 159 I've been told that with alternate camber boards you wanna go up to 8cm smaller than what you'd ride with a traditional camber board. I hope this helps with you're decision dude:)
