binding prefrences

I have a wide board and size 12 boots
I was wondering if your heels hang over your board more than your toes?
Also whats the average highback angle everyone uses?

You want your highback to be parallel with your edge, and you should have as much heel as toe hangover. You want to be centered

An inch is pushing it. That's about the most I would want. I have about a 1/2 inch overhang on mine. It's all about how it works for you, too. If you don't notice it, maybe it isn't a problem for you.

Also, you don't HAVE to have the highback angle set parallel with your board. It is a personal preference and allows you to deliver your power to the board more effectively. I find it awkward and I don't use it.

I would recommend a 26cm+ waist for a size 12 and center your boots over your board, meaning equal toe and heel over hang. An inch does sound a bit much but if its what you've got then you'll have to ride it. Just at lease make sure the boots are centered.

An inch is nothing; it's barely the width of your thumb.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

which way should your bindings go? should you have the large straps in the middle or on the outsides?
