Default overhang: my turn...

is it ok for you guys?
boot: northwave decade sl 28,5
board: K2 podium 159
bindings: Union Data L-XL
the bindings look a bit wide for the boot, and also I am not sure the heelcup is set well. I didnt touch it. While I moved the highback for the forward foot (most angled) in a way to make it more parallel to the board

Do you have a picture from the bottom of the board looking up? Would help a lot.

i do, but I thought this kind of pic depends too much on the angle it is taken, so I thought it could be deceiving. but here it is. Your question though made me understand I am on the edge for toedrag... i am going to kill myself. Right now.

Agreed, need another photo.

From the general looks of it though, I don't think this will be a huge problem. The bindings make your foot rest fairly high off the board, so they act almost like risers. You would need to be at a pretty sharp angle into the snow to get a noticeable amount of drag. Still, it's hard to see from these angles.

You could try widening your angles or your stance if you are really concerned. If you just push yourself back to eliminate toe drag, you are just going to create heel drag. Balance it off as best you can, give it a ride, and see how she fares.

Hmm... Ok, that looks a bit more dramatic now. What is your stance width and what are your binding angles set to in this picture?

That looks fine in all honesty...you might have a slight drag but i dont see how you can catch unless your laying down 50 degree carves Euro style...even then it doesnt look any worse than mine.

You definately dont want to go wide, the wide 158 Podium is 26.2cm...thats for like size 13 feet.
A buddy has size 13 boots on a 25.9cm board and has comparable overhang...he would have none on a 26.2cm board...just as reference.

from this pic:

I don't think you'll have too much problems.. In the end, you will have to judge it for yourself when you're riding.

Oh, and your stance length needs to be measured from the middle of the baseplate, not the outside of the bindings. 27 is ridiculously wide.
