binding not centered?
 
I've noticed my snowboard drifts to my heel side frequently, especially when I only have my front boot strapped in; for ex: getting off the lift. pretty much whenever I am pushing with my back leg, I keep on going towards my heel side... any idea? Btw I have Ride Ex bindings.

when you say going towards your heal, do you mean on edge? or the board is flat and its sliding towards your heal?

question kinda doesnt make sense, regardless of where the binding is set, if you stand flat, because the base of the board is flat. Only issue you should come into with a binding thats not centered would be heal/toe drag and have awkward control. But shouldnt drift.

yeah, the board is flat and going towards my heel side. This always happens when I am pushing the board forward with my free back foot.

do you push with your free foot on your heel side or your toe side? does it make a difference?

as with most issues, i expect this is a technique issue not a problem with your equipment.
