Default binding configuration / setback

so I recently got a new board (2013 ride berzerker) and notice that setting up the bindings is a bit different and I am wondering why

On my previous board, I had the bindings set in the middle holes of the board...same distance from front binding to nose, as rear binding to tail...I was centered on the board (my stance is 22 inches wide)

on the berzerker, I notice that the middle (or close to middle) holes have 'offset' written on them with -3/4 inch..on the front, it's got arrows pointed to the 3rd and 5th (out of 6 holes) and on the rear, it's 2nd and 4th (out of 6 again)..

For me to achieve being on the center of the board with that stance, I have to use the 2nd / 4th holes on the front, and the 1st and 3rd holes on the rear...I find that odd it's so far from middle of the holes, so it's got me thinking, is this board by default just suppose to be ridden more towards the tail? would there be any harm me being in the front? if not, do the 'setback' markings really mean the ideal spot as intended the board to be used?

I have no issues using the setback stance, I am just curious to understand why this is done this way...to me, setback would be the rear mounting holes, not the middle ones

While your description is a little confusing, I looked up the specs for that board.

Yes! That board is designed to be ridden with a setback stance.

Yes! "Riding in the front" will fuck things up.
Those marks are for centering the bindings in the sidecut of the board. If you want to go wider/narrower than that? You need to open or close your stance by an equal number of inserts FROM those marks. That will keep you centered in the sidecut of the board as it is designed to be ridden. NOT in the overall length of the board.

Thanks for the reply Chomps, makes sense!

Out of curiosity, which site did you use to get that info? I ask because nowhere on ride's website does it specify that this is a powder geared board.

His signature board, it's listed as all mountain, pretty sure there is powder on the mountain.
