Quick thread hijack, seems topic appropriate-

Can you (or anyone else) explain what you mean by front foot retraction? I haven't had many powder days in my short time I've been riding (this is my 3rd season, ridden 45 days overall). I did get some knee deep pow first day this season and was struggling through my turns, fore & aft movements, and kept nose diving. I'm on a true twin cambered board with my stance centered. I was going to move my bindings back next pow day, but if there's a different method, I'm all ears.
