Thanks
The 'standard' is -9 and +15 I think, but for everyone it's a job of trial and error I sticked with the standard because i'm comfy with it

MarijnG Boots are feeling okay! after a few days there even fit better & better.
bindings are large and my boot size is 11. i didn't want the risk that they would not fit, so i went for the large cartels.

mikeg Are you sure you have the correct size boots? No slop or heel lift?

I found out turning was not so easy, i really have to be a bit agressive (because my low weight i think).
What can i do about that? My stance is in the middle of the board & the angles are the standard 15 & 9.

Thanks!
Take another week of lessons? Because making turns aggresive isn't the right way (but you probably did already figure that out), well, let me say, sometimes you have to turn aggresive but for the most part it has to be fluent Some extra lessons might help you

Which means that they are the correct size for your boots, but both the boots and the bindings are way too big for your feet...

Putting a loose fitting boot inside bindings that are too large for them again is not suggested. I know that is not what you were hoping to hear, but i figure it is better to put this out there now.

Apologies if this is a bummer.
Completely agree, that looks way too large. As I said before, a size 11/44.5 boot with a 27cm foot was probably wrong - not impossible, but highly unlikely. The picture confirms for me that the boots are too big.
