What angle should my snowboard bindings be set at?
Angling your binding toward the nose is referred to as a positive angle relative to setting your binding at zero. Setting your binding at zero aligns it completely perpendicular to the edge. Most riders will find a front binding angle of +15-21 degrees is ideal.
How should snowboard bindings be placed?
Snowboard bindings can be positioned on the snowboard so that your feet are angled forward, backward or somewhere in between. If you’re new to snowboarding, mount your snowboard bindings in what is called the “duck stance” position, where both feet are angled away from each other.
How do you set up snowboard bindings for carving?
- Keep your binding angles within 5 degrees of each other which will provide you more stability when carving at high speeds.
- Try a stance of 21 degrees for your front binding and 6 degrees on the rear if you’re having a hard time deciding where to start.
How do I know if my snowboard stance is too wide?

How much should my boots hang over my snowboard?
1/2 inch to 3/4 inch of boot overhang for both toe and heel is ideal, and will not create problematic toe or heel drag. Remember that boots typically add 1/2 at both the toe and heel to your foot measurement from above, due to padding, insulation and the outer boot materials.
What does pivot mean when it comes to snowboarding?

What is the difference between regular and goofy snowboarding?

Are my bindings too far apart?
A good starting point is to set your bindings at about the same distance as your shoulder width. Measure yourself from one shoulder to the other (or get a friend to help) and that will give you a starting width. You’ll want to try it out on the hill and see how it feels.
