Highback rotation

What exactly is it? I keep thinking from what I am reading that it is the idea of rotating the highback so that it is parallel with the edge of the board.

Is this right or am I totally missing it here?

I got mine (Flux DS30's) to rotate to be parallel and haven't ridden them like that yet, but is there anything else that it is supposed to help with?

It can also cause a wierd pressure point between your heel and ankle on the outside of your foot. I did not notice this on my Targa's but did on my Forum Republic bindings.

I can imagine that it will give you a little more response, but nothing more significant than factory angle which has full contact with the boot.

Rotating your highback parallel with your edge offers a significant increase in performance on multiple levels.
1. Increased edge pressure while turning.
2. Increased fore/aft freedom so you are able to tweak those airs out better.
3. Increased pressure on the outside of the boot for extra power when pressing/spinning.

There is a reason that almost every competitive halfpipe rider rotates their highbacks.
