binding angles

hi so this is going to be my first time "assembling" a snowboard, so I was wondering how i should set my angles. I know how to carve fairly well, I can blast down blues, and gotta sort of work my way down blacks. I have a Arbor Formula 161(rocker board). I want to set the bindings up where I will be able to improve my carving. I heard that for this you have to set up the bindings in a way where the toes of your boots are pointing in the same direction??. Some sample binding angles meant for carving would be helpful. I have no interest in doing doing park features... other than the occasional ride over the flat box thing. thanks!

sounds like a forward stance would suit you well.

If you're not so much into park and switch riding, you can focus into your carving you can use a stance as +21 / +9 or +18 / +6
It's not so extreme so you can always experiment with new terrain.

Try to mess around with your stance often to find what suits you best. There are plenty of features to adjust such as stance width or forward lean ( highback vertical angle)

Ok thanks! I was wondering what angles would be good to start with because I have been using rental boards until now, and I'm guessing they use neutral/duck? angles and I wanted to go towards using into a forward stance. So I wanted to find some angles that would help me ease me into the forward stance transition that would help me get into the groove without making me not know how to carve. thanks i'll try that out!

Go +18 and -9 at first, and see how that feels. Going from rental, duck footed setups to something like a +21/+9 is drastic, you'd obviously get used to it, but everyone is different. Maybe it's not for you. People naturally stand a little duck footed, remember that.
