When I do this on my 390 boss and westmark it goes onto the toe edge. It's weird. I literally cannot bend my knees without the edge engaging.

Is it just something I need to work on? Break the binding in?
If there's no forward lean, it sounds more like a flexibility or strength issue to me. You should be able to bend your knees without your board rotating... even if your feet were attached by cement blocks.
