Hey guys need some advice..
Just need to know which one is technically right ..

I’ve been boarding with the orange bindings for ages until a snow instructor ( during a lesson) told me i should “re-think my choice of bindings”

I understand its bigger but how does it effect riding performance..
Also i don’t know if there’s a section dedicated to Technical information… if there is, lead the way smile


I don’t know what we’re looking at…

The overhang on the white binding is mental (you’ll drag your toes every time you go toe side). Or maybe the binding is too big hence why you’re cranking the ratchets all the way to the base?

But the Orange bindings barely make the end of the board meaning you have them too far back and your heels will drag on heel side or it’ll just be a lot harder to go toe side.

Take a full board picture with both sets and we can have another look.


Hey @Jase3806,

I think I can see what’s going on there. I’m guessing the instructor said your bindings were too big for your boots, and you’ve upgraded to larger bindings? That’s fine, but as @TJswish pointed out, you’ve probably got some adjustments to do to get equal toe and heel overhang—basically you want your boot to be centred on the board. Post a couple more photos showing what TJ requested and we’ll be able to help you further.

No worries posting in Boardworld Social this time, but for future reference, the best area for product-related questions is “Equipment & Products” which you can find here.
