Help Needed

Ever since I bought my new board I've been having trouble turning. I bought this board for park if that makes a difference. My board seems to always make me turn toe side which makes me constantly lean on my toes. Whenever I stand straight up on my board I catch an edge on my heelside. The front of the board wants to go to the right all the time (I ride regular). What do you guys think could be causing this? I'm thinking it has something to do with my bindings but I can't figure it out. Please help me

Is your binding centered on the board? Strap your boots in the bindings and measure how toes and heel over hang you have-if any. Otherwise with your boot in the binding eye ball it to make sure it is centered. Also, do you have a lot of forward lean dialed in? If so, this might be the culprit.

Check if your boots are centered. (front to back)

I have like no forward lean. I have my highbacks set as far back as they go. Also, when I put my bindings on I put them furthur toward each end of the board for a wider stance but I didn't adjust them for the width. I just set them in the middle and it looks like they have about the same overhang or maybe even a little more hang on the heel. I'm really confused

Did you detune it? It could just be catchy if you didn't

I don't actually know what "detune" means

Are you looking at the boot while its in the binding or are you just looking at the binding. The binding by itself will hang over more on the heel no matter what.

You have to detune the contact points because they'll grab in the snow and set you on an edge and if you are favoring your toe edge then it will set you that way alot. Youtube it to see what it is. But you're boots could have too much toe overhang putting your weight over your toe edge. Or you could just be a beginner and haven't gotten control over your edges. Either way. Detune.

I just put my boots in and the overhang looks about the same for the toe as in the heel. I might try moving my bindings a little closer and see if that helps but I dont want to move them too far together because my board is a 152 and I'm 5'11''.
