Yeah mine has something similar, but then I have no toe/heel adjustment and end up with my boots being way too far on one side (major toe hang). essentially I'm screwed. Looking for a smaller board

For that particular model, you are on the high end of the weight scale at or over maximum (165lbs) for the 152. The board's flex rating is a 3. Expect it to flex like a 2/2.5 in that size for you. The best size for your weight is the 155.

What kind of bindings do you have? You should be able to unscrew the heel cup and high back and move them back to center your boots on the board.
