Description: Burton Descendant Snowboard
If you are considering taking up the sport of snowboarding then you can't go wrong with the Burton Descendant Snowboard. This board is made with beginners in mind and has all the features and accessories you need for a fun enjoyable day at the park or on the slopes. One reason people love this board is the powerful fly core. The core of the Descendant board offers impact and vibration reduction that is comparable to the best boards on the market. In addition to the durable, powerful core the board sports a conventional twin shape and soft to medium flex that makes it great for pulling stunts and doing tricks.

The Burton Descendant 160 shown here has a waist width of 25.4, which is just too narrow for a 13 shoe size (even with Foot Print Shrinkage Technology). Take a look at our Wide snowboard selection: http://www.the-house.com/snbd-wide-snowboards.html. Look for something that is at minimum 25.8.
Most of your choice is going to come down to personal preference, and what type of boarding you are going to do the most. That said: Burton suggests that any of the 148-154 lengths would work great for you. You would normally look toward the shorter sizes for maneuverability in the park, and the longer sizes for stability while cruising. Hope this helps, and I will leave this open for more opinions.
The Burton Descendant 160 should accommodate a size 12 boot. Burton has progressive waist widths so the longer the board is the wider the board is as well. All Burton boards 160 or over should fit you well.
