Question Sorry for another.........

Hi all, first of all I would like to preface by saying sorry for another "overhang" question. I have done lots of research and read lots of contradicting things and now would like opinions.

Ok so here goes........... been snowboarding a bit and can comfortably do it (I wakeboard and surf alot) thought this time I would buy my own gear to avoid rental crap (past experiences)

I'm 6"4 and 100kgs (200lbs about i think) so I brought size 11 burton moto boots, burton custom bindings and a 166 nitro pantera board (waist width 25.9cm). happy with it all except my boots overhang my board a bit (not sure of alot or a little) set at +15, -3. The guy at the store said it would be no problem, I'm not to sure- before i go to the snow again (1st july yay) should i change my board? what do you think?

In my opinion the amount of overhang seems just right unless your a eurocarver... (Supposedly no overhang can make it difficult to apply pressure to the edges)

I remember someone starting a topic on waist width and your boot size, that might've been stickied had it caught on. Maybe someone should start another one?

IMO, I dont think you have to worry about toe drag. My sasquatch feet(size 14) hang over about 1/2-1 inch more than yours and I have no issues with toe drag.

Looks fine..you should pull your toe pedal out closer to the edge of the board though.

Bowie, Nos, I think you're both fine. Just pull out your toe pedals as arsenic stated.

Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated. Will the toe petal make it easier to transition weight onto the toe side edge?

Yes, right now your weight is being focused like half an inch or more behind the edge...if its closer to the end it will take less pressure to initiate toe side turns..might not make a huge difference but you should do it regardless.
