Canting means putting some type of wedge (between 1.5 degrees and 3.5) usually on top of the binding, but sometimes you even see it under the binding or in the boot. The purpose of canting is to align your knees with your feet to reduce stress on them, and also to get better tip control and pop our of rockered (slight u shape) boards. The only way to find out how well it works for you is to try it yourself, some people say they cant feel it, while others can't ride without it. If you can demo bindings with it, them go out there and do it.
