SNOWBOARD BINDING Stance
- An equal distance between the front binding and the nose of the board as there is between the back binding and the tail.
Freestyle riders and some all mountain riders who like to ride switch a lot prefer a centred stance. This makes it easier to ride switch.
- The back binding sets closer to the tail (back)
- The front binding closer to the centre of the board (the waist)
- There is a greater distance between nose and front binding as there is between tail and back binding.
Free-riders and some all mountain riders will ride with a setback stance. A larger setback stance is great if you are riding in deep powder because your weight is at the back of the board which assists with keeping the nose up and out of snow allowing for great powder float.
