Question Does it matter what side your bindings are on ,

hello everyone i just got my first board, and the bindings were attached regular, but i ride goofy, so i took them out and was wondering is there a specific side of binding ? like is one designed for the left foot, and the other the right foot, or can i put them on either way and they work the same ?

Latches to the outside of your foot.

If you put the buckles on the inside (which I did once), when you're on the lift and the board is hanging from one foot it will put all the tension directly on the buckles. I found that my ankle strap had actually loosened by a click or two by the time I got to the top. That can't be good for them.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

Here's a visual of a goofy setup. Notice how the longer tip of the binding footbed is in the middle (same as shoes)

Thank you, i did it backwords because i thought the longer tip was supposed to be on the outside, but thank you very much for showing me that it should be on the inside.
