I got size 10.5 feet, is it possible for me to ride a non-wide board? I wouldn't know cuz I've been using my wide Nitro board ever since I started and I'm looking to invest in a new board, but I really dont wana be limited on my options jus cuz of my shoe sizes. So I'm really hoping the answer is yes lol

You don't need a wide board.  You just need to avoid narrow boards.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

the specific answer is that a waist width of about 255 will be good for you.  "wide" doesnt say a ton, cause they have a fairly large range, and narrow is subjective too.. you could say 250 is narrow, and you could also say 235 is narrow.

I got the nitro revolt shield.. its pretty nice.. a good all mountain board, not incredibly stiff but not flimsy. It can take a nice thrashing through the woods tho =D

wear and 11 boot. ride a regular burton custom and have very little overhang. if its a huge problem you could get risers, which i wouldnt reccoment, or superfeet insoles. which generally allow you to downsize your boot about half a size
-time to get ill

Another option is to get boots that have shrinkage such as the Burton Ions. On a side note, I have a size 10/10.5 boot and my GNU CHB 159 with a waist width of 25.5cm and I'm fine.
