the overhang on your toes looks pretty normal., hard to compare the toe n heel hang from your pic tho, but to measure put the tip of the measuring tape on the edge of the board and measure out to the tip of your to on the boot and do the same for your heel. if you want to do a quick eyeball turn the board over or stand it up and look from the base side and you would be able to see if there is a significant difference.

so its not the amount of overhang off your bindings but more the amount of overhand past the ends of your board?

its simple..Put your board to edge when ur toes or heels will be touching ground. I believe it will be around 60-70 degrees to ground. Do you use ur board with that angle? ofc u dont need wide.

if you have L/XL bindings then you are good with the binding size. right under your toes on your bindings is an adjustable piece called the gas pedal. depending on the binding to adjust it to come out longer (out towards the tip of your toes) or shorter you may need to take the bindings off the board, some bindings you can do it while they are mounted. now you DONT want the tip of the gas pedal even with the tip of your boot and you dont want it ending under the ball off your foot. it should be a smooth trasition from your gas pedal to the tip of your boot it should end about under the knuckles of your toes.

ur overhang looks pretty normal. it's not too much. I just got new boots (Salomon Pledge sz 28cm) coming from Salomon F20's size 28cm and there's a big difference. They're very snug in my bindings (K2 Auto size L) and have a little more overhang than your pictures. and i have a SLR 155... i hope it's ok
