Problems setting up my new board

Hey, I'm setting up my first board since I alwalys use rentals. I researched a quite a bit and also viewed several How-to videos. Thing is I have the impression that my boots are oversized a lot respect the board
I took some photos and I'll really appreciate if you guys can give me your oppinion.
Is a 2010 burton Clash 158 with custom bindings. Boots are burton tribute (i think 2008) size 11.5

Boots don't look oversized to me, bound to have a bit more overhang with an 11.5 but don't think it warrants a wide board. It looks like you might want to set your bindings a bit further back so you have the same amount of heel and toe overhang. Not really sure cuz of the angles of the pics though, best way to tell is look from the base of the board.

Your gear is setup perfectly

Just have to dial in what stance and angles you want, if you don't already know.

You're just right as far as overhang on either side of the board

Good job

I don't think you have much of an issue with that i have about the same amount of overhang on my board (Little less because i ride a 160 with same boot size). I would do what oxi said and move the bindings back a notch so its more even.

The setup is perfectly fine. If your going to have a tiny bit of lopsided over hang, it needs to be on the toes for sure.

Balances out the power difference between heel and toe side, slightly.

Set up is straight and I think the overhang is actually pretty even. I have more overhang with my size 13's on a wide board than you have currently. Good luck with the new ride!

When you're a noob, Burton is all you know and most shops will push the Big B on you if you're not any wiser...sad

To the OP, your overhang looks fine.

With that said... your setup looks fine. The only real way to be sure is to ride it.
