i wear a size 13 boot, would i need a wide snowboard? what is the difference?

You would defiantly need a wide board. 10.5 is primarily where the line is drawn for people when deciding if they need a wide or a regular board. After a 10.5 on a regular width board you will notice that you have quite a bit of toe drag. By moving to a wide board that toe drag is minimized and provides you with a safer more fun riding day. Basically wide board = less toe hang up especially on a boot as big as a 13.

check out the Burton Custom Wide, Burton Blunt Wide, Forum Destroyer Wide, Young blood Wide, Burton Bullet!

And yes, I wider waist will accommodate your foot size so you don't get toe/heel drag.

The Burton twin is a mid-wide board I have had older 153 and now have a 157. I wear a 11.5-12 boot and have never had issues with toe or heel drag. You Could probably pull off a 157 with size 13. Just try to stay with in 15-20 lbs of weigh recommendation if you plan on ever floating some powder on this bad boy. Great Great Board
