Default Wide Board for Huge Feet..Too much Toe Hang?

Hello!

I'm new to snowboarding and just bought a new snowboard setup. I have pretty large feet (Size 15) so I needed a wide snowboard. I've been reading a few threads about wide snowboards and decided to get the Lib Tech Skunk Ape but I'm not sure if its still not wide enough? I really dont want to return it but not sure if I have to. My other choices were the El Grande or Ride highlife. I have about 1.5 - 2 inches toe hang. Please Advise..Thanks...

Is the toe and heel overhang equal to eachother? I think it looks fine, close to what I have.

If the toe and heel overhang is equal (which it should be i believe) then it will all depend on what you are doing, i have not yet fallen due to caught toe or heel drag. If you are doing super deep carves then yeah it may be too much but if you are just cruising etc it prolly wont matter

The toe hang is 1.5 and the heel hang is 1 inch...I don't think I'll be doing deep carving since I'm a beginner...I just want to know if I need to get a wider board BC of the toe hang

Make the overhang equal....you shouldn't have any issues.

Tip your board over if it doesn't get to atleast 45 degre angle then yea you will have drag. If you tip your board beyond 45 the better you will be not having drag

Another thing you can do is trade them synapse boots in for some f series salomon. Huge difference if your having drag. The synapse have more bulk

Center it up and it should be good. Also, what Snowjab said.
