Default Heel/toe overhang? plz help.

Hi im new to this forum...

So I just got:

07/08 Option Kevin Sansalone freestyle board Sz. 157 (I think width is like 246-248mm?)
M/L 08 Option ronson bindings
Size 10 32 Exus boots

I noticed my boots have a bit of overhang on the toe and heel side. it is about an 3/4 to an inch each side. Maybe a little less toe side than heel side. I can tip my board with my boots in the bindings about 80 degrees toe side before the boot touches the ground. Is this good? Heel side I cant go as far. Maybe about a 60 degree angle before the boot touches the ground. My stance is +15/-15.

Is this going to cause any major problems? I figured that I am only a size 10 and didnt bother paying to much attention to board width as I thought a 157 would suffice. I thought only sz 11 and up had to worry about this.

I mostly want the board for freestyle/park, maybe a bit of trail.

I have been stressing over it as this is my first season with my own board and dont want it to screw me up!

thanks.

Thanks for your response.

I have attatched some pics just to give you a better idea.

Heel





I think angle was off here toe doesnt usually look like it sticks out that much.. oh well.



These bindings have like built in "risers" kind of... They lift the two up like an inch off from the board so i guess it gives my toe more room to carve without touching.

You have nothing to worry about. Also that toe strap looks like it was made to go over the boot, not over the toe.

alright thanks man. appreciate the replies.

EDIT: Which picture are you referring too? The first two pictures are pictures of the heel/heel brace, not the toe.

That looks like a little much on the toe side for a size 10. Is your boot centered over your board? And that toe strap looks convertable so you might be able to use it as a cap if you took the heelcup back a little

The boot is fairly centered. I brought the heel cup forward a bit because my toe side is raised up pretty far allowing me to carve quite deep while my heel side i cant go as far. Plus the board is only ~247mm... Is that too narrow for size 10 boot? I see people on here saying 250mm is fine for size 10... i didnt think 3mm would make any difference.

The Toe ramp seems to be overlapping, play with it some and see if your baseplates can adjust ( meaning flip them around)..and yeah that seem like a toe strap.

The toe ramp is adjustable but its already back as far as it can go... I thought it was OK to have the binding slightly off the edge of the board? I tried flipping the base plates around and moving the binding back but then Im afraid too much heel overhang.

And what are you guys talking about with the toe strap? Sorry I dont really understand im kind of a noob.

As far as overhang, is it good that I can make an 80 degree angle on the toes without the boot touching the ground? And about the same for the heel?
