Why Ultrawide?

Those of us with big feet (I'm a US 13) know that toe and heel drag is a big issue, especially if you want to lay out your carves.

How does an ultrawide compare?

  • Normal: 25.5cm
  • Wide: 26.5cm
  • Ultrawide: 28cm +

Finding a big board is tough. Most manufacturers don't make ultrawide boards, and those that do bury the boards in their lineup.

This website is a list of every 2020-2021 ultrawide board available that is at least 27.5cm wide at the waist and 155cm or longer. Since almost every board comes in multiple sizes, I'm only listing the widest and longest variant. You'd never ride anything smaller, right?

If you're not 6'2" with a size 13 foot or larger this site is not for you. You'll do fine with a regular sized board.

Some people like to overcome a narrow board by widening their stance, angling their feet more, getting risers, or just ignoring it. Those don't work for me, and they hurt. Shouldn't big guys have an opportunity to ride big boards?

Choosing the right board size is tough. Here are some useful resources:
