I have a size 14 boot. My toes stick out hurting my ability to carve toe side. What solutions are there or do i simply need a super wide board?
yea you will have over hang and it will effect your abilities to toe side carve and you are going to need a wide board for sure because for a normal board the cut off at the vary max is a size 12 and they recommend a size 11 to be where you switch up to a wide board.....hoped that helped

Im 5'9 and 185 pounds. Im looking for a first board. Never snowboarded before but looking at getting into it. What would be a decent length and is this board suited for begginers. Im looking at hitting some park also
This was my first board, just the previous model. I recommend it to anyone who isn't looking for a really flexible board. This one is pretty sturdy but has a little give. It's decent in the park and great for everything else.
is this board any good for kickers/jumps?...
is this board any good for kickers/jumps? i know its not any good for rails and boxes.
The directional shape of this board will help you with approaching with speed and give stability when man-handling the landings. I also wouldn't say it's not ANY good for rails, definitely doable, just not ideal as say a Ride Kink. But yeah, the Control is a great board to progress on.

Hi,I'm a total beginner and I've never ridden before.I'm wondering what length I should order?... I am 5.8 tall and 150lbs.
First off, you're looking at a perfect board to get started on, the Control will help bump you up to that next level. If you're more into riding the entire mountain, steeps, trees or speed go with the 158. If you're into park and tend to gravitate towards hitting small to medium features and bonking stuff, go with the 155.

My son is about 6' and has a size 1 shoe on his way up. Thoughts on the best board for him. He has been boarding for 8 yrs.
Size 1 ? Dang.

Hey I am looking for a good first board, do you think the Ride Control would be good? If so let me know, I am 6'2" 170 and 11.5 shoe. Also let me know what size would be good.
Super good board to get started on. For your specs you would want either the 158cm or 162cm. 162cm might be a better choice with your foot size.

Budget Price, Highend Feel
The control is a great board for a rider that is in the entry level or intermediate riding level. The board is going to allow you to learn the basics of riding and progress those skills as you really start to get into riding. Hell, if you've been riding for 15 years and you're looking for a stable board that is going to get the job done you'll love this board too.
The sidecut is forgiving enough that you're not going to get those hangups that put you on your ass, but aggressive enough that when you do start linking those turns that you'll enjoy it. Again, for that seasoned rider you'll have a turn radius that you can count on and push.
The board has a nice 4 out of 10 overall flex, so it's soft enough to be forgiving when you're starting out, but not so soft that you can't push it when you start to get dialed in. I guess if you haven't figured it out yet, this board is simply an affordable deck to get you started, keep you going or jump on if you're on a budget.
If you're boot size is bigger than a 10.5, make sure to check out the fleetwood as it is the wide version of the control.
