Default Highback Rotation

I'm kinda new to binding adjustments and have read that the highback should be rotated so its parallel (or close to it) to the board sidecut. Is this true even for aggressively angled bindings, such as +20? Because it seems like it would be kind of awkward to have your foot angled 20 degrees with the highback at 0. But again, I don't really know anything, so help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I typically only adjust my rear foot highback to parallel to the board edge. I'm using a +15 -10 stance though.

Yeah you need the high back at 0, or as close as you can get to it because your legs naturally want to flex medially. If you don't rotate them you can have leg bite from the pressure points on your calves and put your legs in an unnatural position eventually developing joint problems.
