I am looking to buy a Lib Tech Skate Banana but I do not know if I should get it in a wide or not. I wear an 11.5 boot with shrinkage and I was wondering if I could get away with buying the Skate Banana in a regular waist size

Make sure you actually check the width of the board. Not all boards come in the same width.
And it also (slightly) depends on your stance.

If only Queensland had snow...

i made up the birthday and i have 11.5 burton ruler boots with shrinkage and i might size up to a size 12 boot. i was wondering if a board with a 255 mm waist would still fit a size 12 boot with shrinkage

So i remember helping you awhile ago. You said your 154w Parkstar was to stiff for your liking correct? Well if that the case dont get a SB because its stiffer than your Parkstar, just saying

I owned a 154w parkstar, and i own a 156 Pickle, which has the same flex rating as the 156 SB and the 159. I weigh 165, with gear and crap i would weigh around 175. And the Pickle is MUCH stiffer feeling than the K2 was. I know from first hand experience.

Graphics mean nothing bud, buy a board for what you want. I not saying dont get a SB, im just saying that earlier you wanted a really soft board, so im basing these responses off that. And the SB is not stiff, its just really stiff compared to your K2, and the bigger the size, the stiffer the banana gets.

well i was going to go with the 159 mostly because it is better on the mountain and i could get 2 years easily out of it and i didnt think i could use the 156 for 2 years

Arnt you like 14 or something, unless your fat as hell youll be fine on the 156. And i remember you saying you were like 170 or something? Youll be fine on the 156.

Then why do you want a new board in the first place. 

And theres a difference in going up 2cm to a stiffer board. Get the CM out of your head and pay attention to the flex.

Your 5'9 and buying a 159 board, that you plan to ride in the park.... have fun.
Your skill is more important than your board.

PS i could take a noodle WWW all over the mtn if i wanted, because im more important than my board is. Hell my friend actually does that, with his WWW

Than it sounds like you need to improve your riding skillzz, because that is a midflex board. Theres nothing wrong with that board. If your having trouble taking it all over the mtn then i dont know what to tell you.

Didn't you know that your skill level goes up by 1% for every cm you go up in length? Thought that was common knowledge.
