Do you think this looks weird?

I just got my first board and everything. The bindings are a medium and the boots are a 10. I got it form my local extreme sports dealership. He said it is fine but i just wanted a second opinion. Be he i mean the owner of the snowboarding department of the store.

Your toe strap does not look centered. It needs to be centered on the toe of your boot. Yours seems to be way to the right of the boot. See if you can adjust that.

Well thats a horrible angle from a camera phone so I really can't tell. But the fact you said extreme sports dealer leads me to believe its a shitty sporting goods shop like sports authority or some bull shit.

It's hard for us to tell becuase we can't see how far your heel is sticking off the edge. I am thinking the same thing as BA. That store just might not have great expertise in snowboarding equiptment. If your toe and heel are hanging too far off the edge, then they should of set you up with a wide board.

Looks like the bindings are too small for the boot and the toe strap is to high up on your foot.

What he said.

Its okay for your toe hangs over the board just a bit. If there is huge overhang then you would need to get a WIDE board.
