Too much overhang?

Hey guys,

Yesterday I got my brand new board. I wanted to go with a non-wide board this time, as I sized down from a EU 45 boot to EU 44. It is a Nitro Team TLS in 44EU, 11US, 10 UK. So when I got my board I put the boot on it and was quite suprised of the big overhang. What do you think when you look at the pictures. Will this work, when I put some bindings on or is it just too much? The board has a waist of 251mm

that heel overhang seems a bit serious. Your foot will be atleast 1cm higher above the board so it may not be that bad. I rode large bindings on a regular board for years and had some heel catch but it never really screwed me up too bad.

I don't think it is THAT bad. You'll see with bindings. In fact, it all depends how much you can tilt the board without the boots touching (like on the floor). If you can get it to a decent angle, you should be fine.

BTW, I rode with at least the same amount of overhang years ago (pre-wide board era...) without a problem.

should be OK with bindings and a ducked stance.

I have about as much overhang and it is no problem at all. Get your bindings on and your stance set. Make sure you lace your boots up tight and strap them down. Tilt the board and see how far it can lean without touching.

When you check the lean angles make sure you have your boots and bindings strapped up tight.

I will..The only problem is, that in order to be able to send the snowboard back I cant unwrap it. This basically means that I cant mount the bindings to the board. But somehow it will work

You can still strap your boots in and set it to your normal stance angle. Have someone hold it in place while you tilt the board.

If it's possible, I would play it safe and switch to a mid-wide. It looks like you're cutting it close. Just curious, what stance angles are you at?

Pray for an early start to the season!
