Default Binding footbed too short?

I've got 2014/15 medium Burton Cartels paired with a size 11 2014/15 32 STW Boa boot. The binding footbed is fully extended in the pictures. Heel and toe overhang on the board are roughly equal. The space between the end of the binding footbed and the tip of the boot is approximately 1 inch.

Are these bindings too short? If so, is it close? These 11s are big on me, so I anticipate buying a size 10.5 or 10 (not sure which brand) next season.

I would appreciate any advice.

They're fine. Looks like the footbed extends to the edge of the board and past that you're not gaining any additional leverage, but you very well may run into dragging issues.

Yep, looks good. Looking at the 4th pic, I don't think you'll get much drag at all. I have mine set up very similar on size 10 Rulers, haven't extended the toe ramp all the way, I like it sitting the way you have it.

Thank you both for your advice. I used the bindings today, and they worked great; they were much more responsive than my old pair of cheaper bindings.
