I'm just arrived on your great forum with my first question!
I've tried first to use the search function without result.
Ok i'm tryng to do the right choice with my first split,actually i'm using a K2 wide podium because of my size 13,and i wonder if Venture wide could be the right one.
What do you think about ?
Many thanks from Italian mountains :scratch:

Welcome to SB.com.

You should be fine with the wide (27cm) Venture. The bindings on top of the pucks should help with drag.

What boot/binding combo are you planning on using?

What stance angles do you ride?

I personally don't like wide boards and refuse to ride one. I'd rather deal with a little heel toe action now and then.

I ride regular and actually use -21° LEFT and +7,5° RIGHT while distance is 55,5 cm.
My boot: Burton Driver (an old boot to say the truth i should change and save some space)
My binding: Burton Mission

After deep investigation i answer to myself:
the right choice for a 13 size is Venture wide who reaches 26 cm at the center board...
considering also that my mission will be set about 15 mm higher due to voile interface I
should not have problem while carving. :thumpsup:
My only problem now is how to get an euphoria venture board in italy without paying a fortune in custom taxes and delivery :(

I have size 14 boots and I've ridden Ventures with both 26cm and 27cm waists without any drag issues. You'll be happy with either option.

Tks a lot but unfortunely USA is very far from Europe and I couldn't get a Venture on time tu use it! Therefore I took the risk....and in two days h've received a Mojo 166 and it works yes I confirm Mojo 166 can be used by a size 13 rider! :thumpsup:
