female Binding set up

Hey
I am wanting some advice on where to set my new women's flow se bindings on my never summer Infinity board.
I am an intermediate rider and would like it set up for all mountain riding.
Any advice on how my stance should be set and weather I should have my bindings centered or off set.

Thanks 😊

From what I can see the board is a twin shape so centre the bindings on it. For width just go with a comfortable natural width. the wider the more stable you will feel. as far as angle that is all personal preference as is the width. if freestyle is more your thing go with trying a duck stance maybe start with a 12 or 15 degree angle front and rear.

it will be a good start and just adjust as you ride it till you find something that suits your riding style.

Just like stated above, keep it centered. Being a rocker board, you won't need to set it back to ride powder either.

As for width, find something comfortable, but make sure it's now too narrow.

And angles, again, find something comfortable. Go for a duck stance for sure. You could always find a pro rider about your size whose riding style you like and see what their settings are. Try as many angles and widths as you like, you will always hear pro riders saying they switch it up all the time.

In addition to the posts above, I'd say the best starting place for width is the boards reference stance width. Unless you're abnormally tall or short for your weight it'll be a good all around starting place. Should be somewhere around 20-21" or so. Going wider isn't always better...

As for stance angle, some guys swear by forward angles, some guys swear by symetrical duck (both bindings toed out the same angle usually -9/+9 to -15/+15 or so). I have tried them all over the years and prefer -9/+9 for my freeriding. I find it easier to ride switch and it doesn't hurt my carving at all.

Best bet is to setup the bindings then stand on your board and try bending your knees/doing a squat. If one of your knees hurts change the angles. I get the most mobility for MY bones with my setup, you might not be the same.

I always like to start with my bindings on the reference inserts. Then go from there on comfort.
