Default Which holes do I put my bindings in?

Hello all!

I'm new to snowboarding, just got all my gear. Got a 158" Forum Recon board, Burton bindings. I'm 5'10" and ride goofy. I've rented for most of this season and didn't really pay attention to how they set the board up for me, as I was more concerned with falling, haha.

The reference position on my board seems too far apart for me. I have a general idea of how far apart my bindings should be for my height (20-22"?), but my concern is, which set of holes should I use? In other words, how should the bindings be positioned along the length of the board? Does it have to be perfectly symmetrical? It's a directional board...

I read somewhere if I'm riding in deep powder, I should position the bindings further back. I will be riding groomed fake snow runs in Southern California... (I've seen ppl snowboarding in t-shirts around here, heh) Just looking for some beginning pointers.

Thanks!!
