KungMartin here are some pics bseracka, showing heel an toe drag.

for some reason the left side has more of both heel and toe. might have made small error, i'll fix it some other time. i'm exhausted now ;p

bseracka You're new placement looks much better. The key is to try and get the balls and heels of your actual feet as centered as possible between the edges for optimal turning.. If you want to see the ammount of heel and toe drag tip your board on edge with your boots strapped in. You'll be suprised how high your angle will need to be to get drag.

KungMartin there is no forward lean, it's on standard settings without any lean. it is a bit bent, and my burton boots are quite straight, which may be what's pushing it up. but they heels are sticking out under the heelcup so it looks fine.

jdang307 I meant forward lean on the highback.

KungMartin it is sitting down though. if you check the video you'll se me angle the camera behind the heelcup. it's sticking out there, it can't stick out any more than that.

i'll repost the images so no one misses

jdang307 Forward lean might prevent the heel from sitting down.

KungMartin i listened to you guys and here's the new result

here are some angled pics

Basti After watching the video I can say two things:

1. Try adjusting your bindings back a bit. As the others said, your toe overhang is bigger than the heel side. That's not dramatic but it's better if you have them equal.

2. The pushing up problem with the boot might be because the boots are very wide for the bindings. I've seen that same thing with a pair of Burton boots and Ride Capo bindings. That is not a big problem though as you will push your boot down with your body weight when strapped in anyway. All that could happen is that you have a bit more wear. So don't worry about that too much.

I've ridden 250mm waists on a size 11 boot. You don't need 26, hardly anything is that wide unless you get a bigger board or a wide/midwide most boards areound the 156 length will be somewhere around 253-255 mm.
