Hey guys, New to the forum but not new to boarding. Grew up boarding in Vancouver for years, had to move due to work and have been out of the game for at least 4 years due to not being near any mountains ... I have decided to get back into boarding again and will jump right back into it this season in BC when I visit for Christmas. I got a new set-up and hope I can pick it back up again in no time.

Still tweaking the bindings of course...

Welcome. You're all Burton'ed out! I'm sure you'll need a little bit to get your "snow legs" back and will probably be sore, but you'll have a blast getting back on the slopes! I'm getting stoked for the season - next weekend I'm riding!

Ya hopefully it will come back in a few rides, and i do enjoy burton products very much haha.

This is my first time setting up my own board and I have it set-up where I like it but my concern is that heel hang... Any suggestions/comments?

Now I'm not an expert in setting up boards as I've only set up my own, but everything looks fine to me. You do want a little overhang to get leverage in turns. Is the overhang even on toe and heel? Look at the board from the base and you can eyeball it that way - or measure it to get it exact. Also you can angle your board and see how far you would have to get before your heel or toe drags if you're worried about that. Most likely you won't be doing any hardcore euro style carving or getting hard enough angles to cause drag. I think you'll be just fine.
