Help on Jones Mountain Twin
 
So, I purchased my first snowboard, Jones Mountain Twin. Using the reference points, the stance is set-back. Is it okay to move both bindings toward the tip, to get a more centered stance? Is it okay to move the back foot up two sets of holes, and the front foot up one? There are many different opinions on this, so I was hoping to get some feedback on it. Thanks.

I don't know that board specifically but I doubt a small change like that would matter.

You can center it if you want. It wont feel like a true twin but I doubt you'll notice much.

it matters on certain boards more than others, particularly on boards with significant setback due to how the sidecut will get engaged.

On my NS SL, I rode it centered according to the board length for much of its life, when I rode it centered according to the binding inserts (which puts it in a setback stance), I would find my back leg would kick out of a carve much more...a bad thing. Though somewhat odd since I thought it was originally designed for setback riding.

For me, it can turn the riding experience from awesome to complete shit and vice versa.
