they're not adjusted right because one is cap strapped , the other one is strapped over the top. but the boots are as far in as they can be, i pushed'em in as far as i could (without putting'em on)

also, i didnt "tie" the boots, so that's why the straps look so lose, and are showing too much teeth. i'm obviously gonna fix the cap strap problem before i use it this season.

i'll tie the boots and strap everything properly tomorrow and take new pics

Your bindings are not setup correctly. The heel of your boot should be visible below the heel loop. Your heel isn't where it's supposed to be because your bindings are not correctly adjusted and why your 10.5 boots don't fit on your board.

Very generally speaking, 26cm waist width is too wide for size 10.5 feet. Bigger boots will not make much (if any) difference at all - you effectively pressure/flex the board with your feet, not the boots.
It is a common misperception that too little overhang is preferable to too much. The opposite is the case for for pretty much everybody but the most hardcore Eurocarver.

i think that's subjective honestly. the snowboard site i got it from seem to know their thing.

but anyway, judging by this photo, does it really look like my board's too wide?



Oh, and @bseracka, I'll try to fix that problem and take a new photo.

Hey Kung. The board width looks okay to me. From the pics and video, it seems like you have more toe overhang then heel. May need to adjust your bindings so your boots are more centered on the board's width. I have a Burton boot size US 10 with shrinkage. Another boot model US 11. I ride mid-wides and prefer them actually, so no problem. It's all riding style and preference. Go have fun, don't overthink it.

Hey!

Well, I'm just trying to figure out why the heel isn't sticking out under the heelcup unless i press it down. maybe it's normal?

anyway, a guy told me to push the binding back about a centimeter or half a centimeter backwards, so that there's slightly more heel drag. do you agree?

I've ridden 250mm waists on a size 11 boot. You don't need 26, hardly anything is that wide unless you get a bigger board or a wide/midwide most boards areound the 156 length will be somewhere around 253-255 mm.

After watching the video I can say two things:

1. Try adjusting your bindings back a bit. As the others said, your toe overhang is bigger than the heel side. That's not dramatic but it's better if you have them equal.

2. The pushing up problem with the boot might be because the boots are very wide for the bindings. I've seen that same thing with a pair of Burton boots and Ride Capo bindings. That is not a big problem though as you will push your boot down with your body weight when strapped in anyway. All that could happen is that you have a bit more wear. So don't worry about that too much.
