My dear god step back when you take a picture thats too close. Simple solution take your board lay it flat then put it up on toe and heel edge and see how much of an angle you get before the boot hits the ground.

I'm pretty sure thats too much overhang. For Size 12, I'm pretty sure you should have a wide board..

How much heel overhang do you have? I believe your foot should be centered on your board.

How much toe overhang do you have? If it's none, adjust your bindings so that the overhang is equal for toe/heel. If it's still too much, either get a new board, risers or low profile boots.

Did you see the picture at the beginning of the thread with the ruler and everything?

Yeah that's a bit to much overhang, I would say you need a wider board.

But let us see a picture from above the whole board. Maybe the bindings are set to backward on the board.

Um, that's a picture of his HEEL. I said TOE overhang.
Have you never seen someone that rode with 0 toe overhang and a ton of heel hang because they didn't know they could adjust the bindings to equal em out?
