Rotating Highbacks

If there's already a thread on this could somebody link me to it?

I have never adjusted the highback rotation before, I've always kept it at the same angle as my foot is facing. (I ride slightly duck-footed)
Will it make a big difference to change them so that they are parallel to the edge of the board?
Won't the highback be digging into the side of my leg?
(Sorry for the noob question, have never had adjustable bindings like this before)

Change it. Thats what bindings were designed to do. It will help your riding by putting the highback in its propper position, running parallel to your edge.

I too am confused how this works, say i was mounting my bindings duck footed..you would move the highbacks to be parallel with the board edge? I dont quite understand how that is even possible?

Most bindings have some mechanism for rotating the highback. I just rotated my Ride RX highbacks. It was a pain in the ass, lol. Seemed unnecessarily tedious.

you just unscrew the part where the highback is connected to the binding. in that same spot (dunno how it is on your bindings) should be about 3 different positions of where to screw the highback in. so for example, im regular stance duck, on my right binding i unscrew the left screw and realign the highback 1 notch backward so that its more parallel with the board. if necessary you can unscrew the right side screw and move it 1 notch forward to further align the binding. hope that helps

Rotating your highback is the most personal of personal preference.

that is the link to my bindings..notice the little yellow square with the screw in the middle..its where my highback connects to the frame..you unscrew that..and if you can see in the picture, kinda hard, but theres a hole infront and one in back..you re-screw the highback in the most appropriate place that will align the highbackk parallel..same with the other side..hope that helps

My 07 Mission's have something that maybe what they are talking about, its basically where the binding meets the highback there are screws on both sides that can slide forward or backwards..im assuming you can move one more forward than the other to turn the highback...
