Binding Board seperation

I am not sure if this is a big deal but the base of the bindings that lays on top of the board is not flush all the way on the board, this is only happening on the heel back side of it. Also if i was to push down on the board and up at the same time on the highback it moves up. Can you guys please let me know wether this is ok or not. Thanks he is a pic.

Do you have the proper amount of screws in the bindings, and are they torqued pretty tight by hand? Looks to me like it's just not tight enough. I think Burton has some lame system that only uses 2 screws, most bindings use 4 screws per binding because it's much stronger.

Yea, that is really weird, according to the video they flex off the board quite and bit and it doesn't look like your forcing them too hard to get that effect. I wonder if the bindings got molded wrong and are slightly curved, or maybe the inside of the board is curved?

it just looks like they are too loose. maybe if you've tightened them all the way and its still like that your screws are stripped

If the screws are stripped then he cannot tighten them at all.

Does look kinda strange, but some movement is normal. What about the other binding, does it do the same thing?
