That looks fine. I rode a 162cm Process Flying V this year. Pretty flexy and fun board.

Actual placement of your boot is important too. If your toe sticks 4" past the end of the binding, it's not centered.

Put the boot in the binding, strap it down. Eyeball it. Is the boot pretty close to centered? Can you tilt the board quite a bit before there's any danger of the heel or toe dragging?

As the boss says, bindings look good and its a sweet looking setup. Have you ridden EST bindings before or tried the process?

Its a pretty soft flex board and you must be top end of the weight range, so will be lots of fun to play about on and the missions are a bit stiffer than some so will give you plenty of response on the groomers. I have the old Jussi, which is similar shape and what the process is based around, but when I tried the process it was much softer and more playful but didn't have the edge hold of my old camber jussi.

Enjoy!!!
