Binding placement
 
Hello!
I'm a new boarder and have recently built a board with a 15/15 stance, I'm not sure if I have set the bindings up correctly, is there too much heel over hang? This is a rome reverb rocker 155w, but I didn't want toe over hang.

Stick your boots in there and snap a couple more shots.

That's what I meant, and I don't currently have my boots, they are at my mates.

If you lift the padding covering the screws you can see if the bindings are centered on the board. they look a bit close to the heel edge, but a pic with the boots strapped would help more.

As mentioned make sure that you have the binding centered. But already on a wide board unless you have some absolutely honking feet (which I doubt if you're small enough to fit on a 155) there is almost no chance you have too much overhang. You do want your toes to actually come over the edge of the board a tiny bit. A properly set up board will have your heel and toe just barely going over the edge of your board. This allows for maximum edge control but wont be enough to cause any toe or heel drag. I'd almost guarantee your fine but boot pics is the only way to be 100% positive, right now I'm at 98%.
