Been technically doing ball/toe, so it's not completely necessary to buy a long board. My feet aren't that big either. Size 9.
I didn't get to try any longboards today though. Only made it to West today. I tried out the DW 5000, 3000, Pearl Eliminator, some cheap Gibralter pedal, and the Mapex Falcon.
Really liked the Falcon. Smooth, responsive, and I like the idea of weighted beaters. Apparently Mapex is coming out with a new version though, not sure if I should wait for that if I decide to go with the Falcon.
For the $50 bucks or so that Gibralter pedal was, I liked it a lot. If I wanted a cheapo, I'd buy that. Didn't like the Eliminator, and liked the 3000 more than the 5000 for whatever reason. Probably the settings. Tomorrow I'll go to GC and hopefully try out the IC/SC's.
