Default Binding Mount

I have a general question regarding the mounting of bindings on the board. When the tech at the shop I purchased my bindings from mounted the bindings on my board, he screwed in the baseplate with the slots parallel to the board. However, screwing in the baseplate with the slots perpendicular to the board allows you to adjust the binding placement toward the heel or toe side of the board.

Which is the right way? Is there a right way?

There isn't really a right way, if you mount them parralell, you get more adjustment for stance width, while if you mount them perpendicular you get more adjustment for centering. Technically, the binding plate should be centered on the board, and the binding's toe ramp and heelcup/highback should be adjusted to center the boot over the binding plate, but not all bindings offer this adjustability. In those cases centering is achieved by offseting the binding plate. Some companies such as Ride have even made "shift disks" which have offset mounting slots, which depending on the orientation they are mounted allow for beinding centering without loss of stance width adjustability
