Not sure about stance when mounting the bindings.

Bindings just came in and I want to mount them to the board. Should I initially mount them shoulder width and the same stance as I would if I were standing? Just trying to get a good starting point. Here's a pick of the bindings mocked up on the board. Thanx

there is some sort of equation to get a good stance...but I don't remember it.

What you could do is just mount the bindings in the middle inserts and ride it, then, if necessary, adjust to feel.

Heh. You at going to change it about a million times.

This year is my first year with my own equipment. I change something after every time I ride. Angles, width, centering, setback, take your pick. I try to only make one adjustment at a time though.

i think a little wider that shoulder width is suggested as a starter. then adjust it as you ride.

It looks like I'm too far forward here as well. I've read that it's good to mount them a little more towards the back of the board for the slopes.

Wen't to a local golf course just to make some basic adjustments and I must have adjusted the positions of the bindings at least 5 times till I got a mounting I liked. Now I just need to get to a real mountain. I'm sure I'll fine tune it some more.
