need help figuring out my angles

ok im still a beginner (only been bout 5 times all together)..and i'm trying to figure out what angles i should use on my bindings. everytime i go i been switching them all over the place, but i still cant really figure out what i should start out with. i see the recommended start was 15 and 3, but i'm trying to work on riding switch so that feels really akward. any advice?

i used to ride at about 12, 9 for 7 years, but last year i switched to a 15, -15 stance because i heard it was mre "natural". i definantley like my new setup more especially for switchriding. it will fell akward for a run or two, but after that it felt much more comfortable.

When it comes to binding angles, it all really depends on the rider. What feels good for one person may be horrible for another. Is the 15, 3 working for you now when you're not riding switch? If so, then it's just an issue when riding switch. Is it the leading foot when riding switch that feels weird? Just keep changing things up, one side at a time until you find the angles you need.
