Should I rotate my high backs??

What's up fellow shredders?? Hope ya having a great season so far...I come to you guys for some help on setting up my park board with my bindings. So to make a long story short I've been getting into the park more often and seem to be spending most of my day in there. I've never done it before with any of my boards but after reading its caught my attetion. Since I'm becoming more park oriented, would anyone (park riders) suggest me rotating my high back to line up with my heel edge. Is this something that would help me progress in the park and in my spins and control or would doing this completley screw shit up. Your feed back and suggestions are high appriciated.... I ride a +18/-18 with 3.5 canted footbeds on rome 390 boss

Thanks
Happy Holidays everyone

rotating your high back will make the weight more centered on your heel edge.

Yes. Or no. Or maybe. Comes down to personal preference, with some physics that says yes.

What do you want? Someone to sit you down and tell you that if you rotate your highback that it will make you a park star? Come on man, in the thread it explains thoroughly what rotating the highback helps.

What do you think it will help?

My guess is that it will free up your boot for presses on rails and boxes and help nose and tail grabs on kicker and jumps. Is that better?
