|Mihai Cristian||Ok, thank you so much for helping me. I will do the photos later on today, as i am at work now.|

Yes, your binding is also simply too large for your foot and has no adjustment to compress it further or move it forward. As you can see you are not reaching the toe ramp. I would suggest a binding that is designed for your 260 Mondo foot. That will allow you both correct positioning within the binding and correct positioning on an appropriately sized board.
Do you have access to the board that you are considering? We are unable to tell from that info sheet what the width is at the inserts. Waist width should not be considered.
I think we may be struggling a bit with language so please let me try to show you what I am referring to. Please take the bindings off of your board. Please take off your socks and stand on the board where your bindings were at the same stance width and angles. Please center your feet between the edges when you do this. Please post photos of this.

If i get the Raven Gravy 2016 board, gullwing profile, what bindings should i get? And also, what lenght? 151 or 154? I think that i should go for a 151 (freestyle) based on my height (177cm) and 73-74 Kg.
Here are the sizes:

Well, they are at their maximum limit. As you can see in the image bellow i can't move the bindings more, to get a biger overhang toe...

Your foot is still much too far off the heel edge. Sadly it looks like your bindings have no other settings that will allow for your foot to be adjusted further forward. This binding is too large. This combination of too wide a board and poor centering will make riding very difficult.

Here is the photos with the new settings. I moved the bindigs to the point where i have 26CM. Also I made the nose longer then the tail and put a 0 degree on the back foot (right is the same, 15) so i would force myself to only ride with the right foot forward.

|Mihai Cristian||ok let me see if i understood...the bindigs are mounted in the wide part of the board and this is wrong. Also, i need to move them more to the edge on the toes, because the heel is very back.|

Got it. You have two significant issues that are holding you back.
1. Your foot is 26 cm but your board is 26.4 cm at the inserts that you use. When you factor in stance angle, your feet are going to be ~1.5 cm inside the confines of the board's edges. That makes riding very difficult for new riders as it becomes difficult to leverage the board's edges.
2. You have your bindings mounted so that you have a significant amount of heel overhang and negative toe overhang. This makes it extremely difficult to get positive toeside turns and leads to that board driving you feeling that you mentioned.
I am very confident that once you have corrected your gear issues that your learning curve will see a dramatic upturn .

|Snow Hound||I can pretty much guarantee that you need to get your weight further forward - to commit more weight to your front foot. Almost everyone struggles with this at first.|
