New guy here with a question!!

Hi everyone! My name is Marko. I'm from Croatia and pardon me on my bad english!
I'm sorry if I placed this in a wrong section. I have been reading your posts
for quite a while and I like the forum very much.
I have a question regarding my snowboard width. I own a Burton Moto boots size 11.5,
and I ride the Nitro Revolt 158 with the waist width of 25 cm. I have about 2cm (3/4')
of overhang on the toe and heel side. My angles are 21-front and 18-back. I know i need a
wider board, but I realy like this one and don't want to change it.
As I see it i have two solutions - get a wider board or find a smaller footprint boots.
New Burton 2011 boot with shrinkage tech reduce the footprint for at least 1 size. That means i get about 1 cm of footprint less. Which would be just right. Here are some images...so please comment. Is this too much? Should I go for a new boots or a new board?
Thanks!

You do not need a new board that is wider. Overhang is only an issue once you get around 4-5 cm of overhang.

Thanks for the replies.
I noticed overhang for the first time when I was in deep powder, but my bindings were set too much to the toe side of the borad. So I moved them more to the center. I went from 4 cm of toe / 0 cm of heel....to the 2cm/2cm. Still no snow here so not sure how it will work. If you guys say im clear...than it should be OK.
