you can go with anything that has a ww of 250mm or more. 260 and above is a little extreme depending on your stance. the wider and more ducked out the slimmer board you can ride. i have a size 12 and rode at around 24 inches +18/-18 on a board with 250m waist and it was fine unless i really laid one down. i got a stairmaster 152w at the end of this season and thats at 257mm and there is no catching at all and its way more stable but harder to turn. id say if the ww is between 250mm and 260mm then you will be just fine.
