|ic3_qu33n||im still new to the bindings and such but i recently had my bindings put on the guy asked me how i wanted it he said he usually puts it at 5 degrees or what not i dont know if that will make much of a difference... it does look a little too much overhang to me... mine are only over about a quarter to half a inch or so|

|Baldie||here is a pic of my boot on my board of my back foot. The angle is at 0.|

|john doe||There is supposed to be some overhang. As long as it's not so much that it will drag when the board is slanted its fine. If you are unsure post a pic.|

|Baldie||I'm installing the bindings on my 157cm board but it looks like my toes and heels (back foot)are slightly going to be off the board. Does this mean I need to get a wider board?|

|mjd||157 would be perfectly fine. i'm five-ten 175 and ride a 151 most everything except pow.|

I can definitely say it's easier to ride a board that's too short than riding a board that's too long, if you're a new rider. And I'll reiterate in different words, I think board size becomes irrelevant when you're an experienced rider. At that point you know what you want, you know how to manipulate it, and you know its limitations.
If you're a new rider, and actually care to progress, proper board length and rigidity is a much more important factor.
