Check out the pic, he is bottoming out his ratchet.




and this one shows the strap at nearly the farthest hole out no wonder he's having issues



in addition with sz 11 boots I would expect some toe overhang there is none. Does that seem right, or now way to much heel over hang???

I'll throw a picture up of what I mean by forward position if you dont understand what i'm saying. I crank them down to the very bottom and they're halfway up by the tip I hit any park feature or heelside carve. Any help for keeping these things in place without going out and buynig a new cap ?



Pics dont want to embed so heres the mofuggin links. Cap is barely on center and no teeth showing, both strap and cap are in the furthest back channel (meant for cap strap)

Your toe straps are way too long. Adjust them 1 hole shorter (at least).

Toe and heel overhang should be equal. i.e. you should be centered on the board.

there are different sized toe caps usually s/m/L...your's looks to be way too big...wrong size...go down 1 or maybe sizes. It also looks like your binding is the wrong size for the boot and perhaps you tried to compensate by getting a longer toe strap, idk....It all looks funky....take your boots/bindings with you to the shop.
