Exclamation Will I have toe/heel drag?

Hey guys. Im pretty new to snowboarding and i just bought a new setup. I was wondering if I will have any toe drag when I ride. I have a K2 Playback 2014 with a waist width of 25.2 cm. I wear Burton Moto boots size 11. Here are some pictures. Thank you

You're fine on the toe edge. Post of photo of both your toe and heel edge.

+1, as long as it's centred you'll be fine, if on the other hand your heel is somewhere closer to the middle of the board, you'll have problems.

Thank you for the feedback guys. I now feel better about the board. Heres the heel side. Its kind of hard to see but i measuered it and it was less than the toe side.

You're fine.. especially since you're a beginner i doubt you'll be railing any hard carves anytime soon

I've got size 13 feet and have run 25.2 waist boards in the past... can wash out if i rail a really hard carve on hardpack, but i'm talking armpits in the snow almost.

You'd have to climb a wall to get those to drag!
