it is true that you should get a slightly bigger board if you are using boots. Also, not every board is fit for boots.

If you are looking for boots, I can give you a good deal on a pair of brand new LF Ultra Kite boots. Its the 2013 model, awesome boots. I got them but they are a bit big for me (I am only 145 pounds, my foot is like an 8 or so). I am always at 3rd, you can take a look at them...

Thanks for the offer, I'm size 11, ordered Ronix One after reading a whole bunch of reviews. My board is the Caliber, I think it won't be an issue to mount boots bindings vs straps.

11 eh? Yeah that would be a bit tight with my size M boots ;-) I am just wondering, if your body is like your feet, why is your board just 136? Ever tried something bigger?

I didn't know what was the right size for me when I started, so I got 136. We'll see if I sink up on that board with the boots.

I've got a 14m switchblade that I could sell for a reasonable price. 2011 still in good shape no repairs.
