Backcountry binding setup?!

Just curious how you guys setup your bindings in backcountry.

Last time I rode a mololo and the backcountry tour operator set it up at -2 back from the reference point.

What do you backcountry riders like to do so you can surf on the back of your board?

You can put more weight on your back foot, move the bindings back or use a proper board for the deep. Whatever keeps the nose afloat.

Unless it was an older full camber Malolo that was probably unnecessary. With rocker in front, a setback insert pack, and a pretty good tapered shape that board should float all on its own.

Most boards designed specifically for powder nowadays don't need any extra setback to get a surfy feel. Just get a board designed to surf pow.

As for angles its just what you're comfortable with.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I like to ride 21 -6 if it's a deep day, but really it just all depends on what you want to do. I find opening up that much makes turning/control a lot easier, but I also mostly ride a full camber board around all-mountain.
