Default Boots over edge, problem?

Got a board real cheap last summer, I assume its regular because it doesn't say wide. 159 cm long and my boots are 11. The toe of the boots stick off maybe 2 inches and to hold my balance I feel like I need to lean backwards on my heels a little too much. I think the problem is I need to move to a wide. I ask here because I'm still at the noob stage. I've boarded enough that I know there isn't too many better feelings than it. I just don't want ignorance to be what holds me back. Any useful information is much appreciated.

how old is the board? size 11 shouldnt really cause a big fuss.
2 ways to help it....

1) try using the binding plates where the holes are going from edge to edge not tip to tail. that way you can move them toward the heels a bit.
2) Duck your stance. anything over 10 and -10. get your toes pointing outward. the boot will hang over the most at 0 deg.

my toes hang over the edge more than my heels(though my heels hang off about an inch) even though I set up the bindings as far back as I could put them.

Three inches of overhang is a lot with size 11 boots. Can you post a photo of your setup? How wide is your stance? You should be OK with 11s on a 159 unless the board is unusually narrow.

wasn't quite sure how to upload a photo so I made it my profile pic. The boots are more specifically 11-11.5. My stance is moderate.

WHAT TYPE OF BOARD IS IT??

What is your stance SET AT? "Moderate" means nothing - Check your baseplates and determine the DEGREES.

Are you sure your didn't glue your bindings onto a Ski?

I wear size 11 as well. Get a wide, it's worth it. 2 inches is a lot, even if you centered your binding more I don't see it making that much of a difference.

Definitely a good investment. Overhang is just holding you back. You can post here and we can help you find the perfect board for your riding style. (Freestyle/Park, Freeride/Powder, All Mountain etc.)

Managed to fix the majority of the problem with new bindings. I was using 6-12 bindings before and stuck off 2 1/2 and now with 8-14 It's more like one inch.
