the back of your boot sticks out pretty far out compare to the front.

Your wife's board is perfect. And personally from what I've seen on your board id roll with it. My boot hangs off the back of my bindings and the front of my bindings way more than that and I experience zero toe drag or heel drag.

If I was to try and centre my boot on the board, the binding would have to move. And that would make them hang over the toe edge.

you cant just move the heel cup?
my union force I can move the heel cup without moving the base.
looks like you could. these screws near the base by your heels, they are there so the high back and heel cup would move in and out for different boot sizes.

This is the absolute best I can get the binding to sit with evening up the overhang of the boot.

Is the bindings ok where is it?

I know it's not even but that the best it gets.
Here it is with the cup moved forward and boot in. Really should of got the medium binding I think

that looks fine froot, dont sweat it. You live and you learn. Burton bindings are not super adjustable due to the unibody design. You can tune it to within a 1/2 CM or so and live with it at that point. If you are concerned about the front of the basepad extending past the edge the that can be moved in slightly but it looks like it is fairly far back on yours.

yeah the base pad is set all the way back, so there is no room for it to go back further.
Thats as short as i can get the binding.
If i undo the screws for high back and push them all the forward, is that what there for? or is that to get the high back parallel to the board?

The only issue is to get that set up like that i have moved my high back as far forward as it goes. And it seems to be no where near as strong as it is at the back.

Is this a problem?
If so i think i might need to buy the medium bindings
