Centered bindings

Hey this question is for all the guys who have been riding park forever.
Do you center your bindings so that you have the same distance between your front binding to nose, as your back binding to tail for riding park?

Your answer is yes

I assume you will be riding switch and that's where the centered stance really comes into play...

Okay, last season I tried this twice, and each time like 5 hours into riding my back upper thigh got like super painful. It wasn't like the normal bit of pain you get when riding sometimes. It was unnatural pain, that you shouldn't be having.
why?

Sounds like a stance width and angles problem. Or just lack of strength in those muscles..... I'm not sure how your riding style is but you obviously can't ride 5 hours right off the bat early in the season and expect not to get some pains ya know?

Those angles don't sound bad unless you're riding switch a lot... That -9 could put you in a bit of a weird bind

What bindings do you ride? You just might possibly need an adjustable footbed

I had the same problem also when I was riding 15/-15 last year so I don't think it's the angle

Weird....

It could be a fatigue issue or like I said you may need canted footbeds.

Are you riding some really rough stuff with a really soft board?

Other then that I can't really suggest anything.

Width/angles/footbed/fatigue/soft board are the usual issues. Further then that and you're going to need someone smarter then me to give you suggestions.

Sorry buddy

No not really...
I don't even feel it coming down on hard packed landing or anything of that nature. It's mostly bombing straight down groomers, or just riding around in general.
Maybe My quadriceps are weak?
The strange thing is that it is only when I move my back binding up 1 set of holes to make it centered. Maybe I'm not used to riding with a centered stance?

If that's when it happens, that's probably the problem..... A width issue

Well the good thing is you can almost surely solve that problem by just putting time in with that width.

I try to keep my width distance as close to the same as possible whether I'm centered or set back. Once you find a width and angles that work for you it's generally best to keep it that way at pretty much all costs cause it works ya know.
