Default Help asap! Binding Direction?

Hello there, this is my first time using this forum so I hope I'm doing this right but I've been riding for around 5 years, I own a 147 Burton Lux and Citizen bindings.Oh yeah, and I'm a girl. I just fished fully tuning my board and decided to change up my stance. I was thinking 15, -9 but I don't know... ANYWAY should I face my bindings downhill(towards the nose) or uphill? It's a true twin so it really doesn't matter, but I just don't ride switch that much. I'm going riding in like an hour, so help! Thank you :]

Face them toward your dominant forward foot...

There are tools at th mtn.... Play with the setup until it feels right. 15 and -9 is a decent setup to start at, most rarely ride switch enough to make it worth a true duck stance...

Do you ride with a Regular or Goofy stance? If you put you're right foot Forward you're goofy - left foot forward Regular. That will dictate which way you face them - but your front foot will always be angled towards the nose no matter what.

+15 -9 are pretty decent angles, it's what I ride most of the time. With that stance just make sure your front foot is +15, or 15 degrees towards your nose and your back foot is angled 9 degrees towards the tail.

Here's what it would look like for Regular:

15,-9 is a good stance to start out at. When you're riding though and you feel a tendency to want to "twist" one or both of your feet in a certain direction, that's a good indicator to add/take away a few degrees. It might take you some experimenting to find that sweet spot that feels the most comfortable for you.
