Default Moving bindings?

Ok as most should know, I have a K2 Darkstar wide, not the best board as I have a small foot lol I rode it for a few days in NZ and as most have said it will be fine, a TAD unresponsive but still better then the hire boards lol

Just a question which might help me get from heel to toe edge a bit easier as that seems to be where the trouble is, I have K2 Formulas and was wondering if there is a way I can make it center my foot a bit more (less heel overhang and a bit more toe?) just to even it out a bit.

Don't really wana be playing around with them unless I know what I'm doing.

Thanks for the help

Make sure your toe ramp is touching the boot as far out and low as possible (if its adjustable etc. Make sure boot is centered in binding. What angle and stance do you ride?

Turn your disk so the slots run edge to edge and not tip to tail, slide it forward or backward as needed then tighten down. Like Fluid mentioned pop the pins under the toe ramp and size them whatever size boot you're using as well. Also don't forget to adjust the heel cup, the allen screws don't need to be touched at all in doing this those are designed to hold it in and slide back and forth.

if you're riding a wide, but your feet are too small for it, why don't you try riding with your binding angles at 0

because that would sacrifice comfort.
