SNOWBOARD BINDING Angles

BINDING ANGLES

  • The angle of your feet on the board which will affect the way you ride
  • More easier to perform what is needed for that riding style.
  • Setting will depends on rider's ability, style, personal preference and body type.

STANCE ANGLE

  1. 0° angle refers to your feet being completely straight across the width of the board (perpendicular).
  2. A positive angle (+) is when your toes are pointing towards the nose (tip/front) of the board.
  3. A negative angle (-) is when your toes point towards the tail (back) of the board.

BEGINNER STANCES

THE FIRST SCHOOL OF THOUGHT 

Make learning easier to ride in one direction, you should set up your stance to make turning easier whilst still feeling stable.

Most common setup:

+15/ +0 & +15/ +3

THE SECOND SCHOOL OF THOUGHT 

For the start, you can ride in both direction until you can trace that you are goofy or regular. Its more easy and then change to a more forward stance.

Tips: If you are sure that you are goofy or regular and then play around with it from there until you find your most comfortable set-up.

FREESTYLES STANCES
