Afraid that my bindings stick out too far [pics]

Hey guys! Newb here. I recently bought myself an Alibi board from Zumiez with burton freestyle bindings and ride boa boots. I love it so far, but I have come to see that the toe side of both my bindings stick out past my board just a bit. I have a 158cm board and a size 11 boot. I didn't really pay attention to whether it was affecting my toe sided turns when I went last week. So I'm gonna go tomorrow and pay special attention to that.

But also I just wanted to get your opinion on this. Here are some pics. I ride regular with my left foot at a 15 degree angle.



^Back foot



^lead foot


any help appreciated!

I can't help you but I have those same bindings, in black, and they're good. Just thought I'd say.

And Krispy Kreme, like?

Well I just decided to whip out a screw driver and move them back 2 spaces i guess you can say and now they dont stick out at all! problem solved.

And regarding my username; not quite. 7 years ago when I played basketball in Jr.High the team manager started calling me KrisBKreeme cause my first name is Kris and my last name starts with a B. Way before this Krispy Kreme guy.

Just strap your boots in and make sure the heel and toe overhang is the same. if not move it either forward or backward to even it out.

Do you know the width of the board? I'd put somewhere between 6 and 15 degrees on your back back binding too.
