Question Bindings Too Long???

My bindings have an adjustable toe-ramp length, and I made it longer so that more the toe-end of my foot is on the baseplate. However, when I do this the end of the binding sticks out over the edge of my board. Is this okay or what? Should I just shorten it so that no part of the toe-ramp sticks out? I'm just afraid if its like this it could get real messed up on some rocks or ice, or that from continuous use and weight being on it, it could weaken the plastic/PVC or whatever its made of.

No, that's perfectly fine, as long as you don't have like the majority of it sticking out, but that's just obvious. You should usually have a little hangover, so I wouldn't worry unless you got some mass toe drag going on. In either case, you'll feel what's funky. As far as the worry about the toe ramp weakening over time, I don't think that's a problem, all of your weight isn't going to be on the toe ramp 24/7. You'd probably have to exert a lot of weight on it to really weaken it. So unless you set it up improperly, in which case I don't even think it'll do much but bug the shit out of you, you should be fine.

Take your board tilt it up on your edge like you would when you carve see how far you go before the toe ramp hits. My toe ramps stick off my boards edge I like it that way it gives me more leverage.
