A quick survey of the world's top pros reveals one undeniable truth; snowboarding is a small person's game. There are exceptions - Mikkel Bang, Danny Wheeler - but for the most part the taller, bigger guys have a tougher job. It's just basic physics.
This is partially down to foot size. If your toes hang over the end of your board, they will most likely drag on those deep carves. Fortunately, more and more brands make wide versions of their range, so those with big feet are well catered for.
Some boards are wider to compensate for the fact that they're also a lot shorter than your average snowboard. We've not included here - head to our Best Snowboard Shapes page to get an idea of what they're all about.
This list instead focuses on the wider versions of standard sticks. So if you want a conventional ride that works for your plus-sized hooves, you'll find it below.

Dinosaurs Will Die Geeves Snowboard 2016-2017
Andrew Geeves 'is a big guy, so it follows that his pro model is pretty damn wide.
It's also got a fun freestyle design, so won't let you down if you like to get ticky.
Elan El Grande Snowboard 2016-2017
Elan’s El Grande is a board that's only available in its super-wide size - a welcome trend for the big-footed.
It's built for a thrashing, with carbon and Kevlar in the construction, and it's pretty stiff and responsive too.
Lib Tech Skunk Ape Snowboard 2016-2017
This one even comes in 'Ultra Wide', so there's no shoe size too big for the Skunk Ape.
Its all-mountain credentials are not to be sniffed at either; if you like to tear it up all over, this has got your back.
Never Summer Twenty Five Snowboard 2016-2017
Never Summer cater for the wide board user more than any other brand; every stick they make also comes in a chubbier version.
The Twenty Five is no exception. Not only is it wide, it's also a super-tech freeride whip that's the sum total of 25 years' board-crafting experience.
Nitro Magnum Snowboard 2016-2017
A classic camber board with a directional outline, the Magnum is one for the all-rounders.
From the park to the peaks, this will enhance the day of any larger rider - and again, this one's only for the big 'uns.
Ride Berzerker Snowboard 2016-2017
Jake Blauvelt’s not a particularly big dude, but in the process of increasing the size of his Berzerker for those who are, he's lost none of what makes it great.
This wider version of this slightly setback weapon performs impeccably, no matter where you take it.
SIMS Blade Snowboard 2016-2017
Like their factory buddies at Never Summer, SIMS do wide versions of all their boards too.
So while it's not surprising, it's to be commended all the same. The Blade is for the carving fans out there, who'll be able to get lower than ever without scraping their toes.
Völkl Alright Snowboard 2016-2017
The wide version of this is a massive 167cm long, but you don't have to be Hagrid-esque to enjoy it.
It's been designed to feel like something much shorter when you're on piste - those elongated nose and tail sections only really coming into play once you're in the deep stuff.
WEST La Hache Snowboard 2016-2017
The La Hache is Swiss brand WEST's flagship board, but the one pictured here is the wide version.
Aggressive riders will love its stiff, powerful build, with added carbon that lets you pop to the moon.
