Default Bindings angle?

Is there a problem with riding with both bindings at 0 deg? Could I be riding better if I gave it some angle? I don't want something that would restrict my riding control when I'm switch though.

i highly suggest that you try to change your angles. if you are worried about riding switch just make it duck stance(back binding angled backwards). it all comes down to personal preference on angles so try something like 9/-9 degrees and tweak it from there to get teh best feel.

I know a guy that rides 0/0 and I've done it myself just for fun. I felt like it only negativly affected rails but maybe that was just me. If you're concerned about switch riding, I would experiment with a ducked stance and see how that feels.

0/0 is purely dependent on whether or not your feet can handle it. The majority of people stand with their feet naturally ducked to some degree. There are people who naturally stand with both feet at 0 degrees. The best way to start playing with your angles is to: lay your board on the ground, stand behind it, then jump and land in an aggressive stance so that your feet are directly behind the bindings (this is so they are approximately the same width apart as the bindings).

Note the angle of your feet and set the binding angles to mimic your feet. You can then start tweaking it from there. Keep in mind that ducked stances do not mean that it has to be mirrored angles i.e. +15/-15. I use a +18/-12 and it is still considered duck. You should spend a good day on the mountain tweaking angles. You will generally know if you like the angles or not after a couple of runs.

I wouldn't think 0/0 would be a problem unless you have a lot of overhang which is my problem even with a wide board. Going with either a forward stance or duck would possibly be more comfortable. I know it is for me anyway.
Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.
