Front Snowboard binding angle

Post by Daleyg3 » Thu Aug 28, 2014 7:22 am

Recently I got less and less confident having my front foot of my Snowboard bindings at 16 degrees, for taking heelside corners, and I had no idea why..

Then it came to me that I've definitely picked up a bad habit from DH Longboarding. I changed the angle to just 8 degrees and suddenly it feels sooo much better (about the same angle I have my front foot when taking a fast heelside corner on my Longboard).

A little strange, was just wondering if anyone else uses less than the standard 15 degrees for front foot? And if so, why?

nope, i have 21 forward on my front foot! and 9 forward on the rear. Always funny to see the look of disgust on a freestylers face when they see my setup :)
