he put my bindings on the wrong way??

I went to a board shop to have my bindings put on. The guy rides goofy and I ride regular, so he was a little confused if he was putting them on the right way.
Well he put my angles as 0,-15.....and I said to him. Are you sure thats right?

He said ye, so i took it as correct and left. Coming home I imagined riding downhill with that stance and I thought to myself....

Shouldn't it be +15,0...or like +6,-6??

I think he put mine on backwards, forgetting I was regular and not goofy like him.

Maybe he didn't know which side of the board was the front, just becasue a guy works in a shop doesn't mean he knows what he is doing. Your front foot is supposed to be more angled to the front than the read, or perfectly even for duck...

Yeah. Mine are at 15, -9. That's pretty comfortable.

Myself, I'm trying 15 degree duck (15/-15) this year, out from 12 duck last year in my everlasting battle to find the perfect angle for my knees. You really want to experiment and find the perfect angle for your knees where there is no pain. The perfect stance for one person can be completely wrong for another person.

TL;DR: 15 ducked might be fine.

Be nice to your Hacker. We make magic happen.

Fucking truth, i have ridden everything from 15,-15 to 15,-18 over my 15 years of ridding and now i can't find one to hurt my knees when i land a jump... SOOO it's going to be 12,-9 this year to see if it helps

Assuming the front of the board is facing forward, Goofy is set up so that the rider's right foot is forward, and regular left foot is forward. If you ride regular, stand on the board with your left foot forward. You should be facing the right side of the board. Your left foot should be angled out from your body, back foot can go either way. Biggest problem is if he was retarded and set your front foot inwards, or just set you up goofy. Just get a screwdriver and fuck with it

First the guy that used clay to fix his base and now someone that can't put on their own bindings. This a sport that depends entirely on very specific gear working correctly. Learning to do your own stuff, like setting up bindings, is just as important as learning to ride the board.

Put the bindings in the position that feels the most comfortable. There is no right or wrong.
