Default New Booad Help

Hey guys im new to the forum and I am an intermediate rider I just upgraded from my starter board which was an Atlantis to a Burton.. So I just switched the bindings out and when I hit the slopes I felt like I had no control over the Burton. When I would be going strait down the slopes my back foot would slide to the left ( I am a regular rider) I never had any problems like this on my Atlantis. Both boards are 160cm and I am about 6 ft tall.. Is this something thin I just have to get use to or do you think it is a factory defect?

Thanks guys!

Are you saying that your bindings are loose?

mm, do you have Burton bindings? Did you get a convertor disc plate if not? Are your boots a perfect fit (no looseness especially at the ankle area)? Did you detune your board?

Are your boots centered over the board?

Its sort of normal to pivot when you flat base... isn't it? Depending on how you're standing your board will pivot when your not carving and just riding flat... that's how it is for me.

keep your stance centered; make sure your boots are centered over your board width-wise
