I also highly suggest that you don't just stop at an angle that is comfortable. Still try a few other combinations to make sure. This happened to me when I went from 15/0 straight to 15/-15. Was comfortable from the start and stuck with it for 3 seasons. Then one day I just wanted to mess around with everything for the heck of it and low and behold... 18/-12 felt even better!

It's also a little nice to know which angle combos you can ride comfortably. You know, for situations where you are riding a friend's setup. You might not have to change the setup if they are rocking one of the angle combos you can ride with

Did you have a reason to go with the ++ angles or was that just how the board came?

no reason at all. I was just playing with angles one day and stuck with it all year. At the time I felt like i had more control of the board and wanted to go faster, that's all. Nothing really special about it.

You technically do have more control over the board with forward angles. It gives you more control over the edges. This is why Terje rocks positive angles. It's also why most Euro carvers rock positives.

Fair enough, seems like solid reasons to go with it.

I felt less stable landing jumps when I changed my stance to +15/-15.

It does make switch a lot more enjoyable.

alright so I finally got to try my board out at 15/-15 today. It only took 1 run for me to feel comfortable in it. It was actually a very CLEAN feeling.

1.) had to set bindings to the FARTHEST holes on my board. Or else it feels like my knees are too close... maybe I'm still riding weird.

2.) because the bindings are so far out I can't land on my tail on jumps (i use it to cushion the fall). Nor can I use the tail to pop really well or butter.


On the plus side rode Switch all the way down the mountain today!! woo!

I still feel more dominant on +/+ bindings but I'm going to keep the +15/-15. Maybe I'll try bringing the bindings in a bit again... do I need EQUAL tail and nose??
