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.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

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.

Referens stance in the back is a (FSC ) that" is the stance for the back freestyle stance ! The front just apply how many inches will U like to have for stance ( 22 eller 23 ) inches ! But try diferent stance till your find the good one ! Ride it for a day ! Not 2 turns and change ! Remember the board is set back 2 cm from the entire board shape side cut . My friends said at all set back boards ! Just move the front binding ! Not the back ! and it works ! Or just put the bindings over the board no screws ( and check how the board looks good ) a profecional rider from lib tech told me that !!! they dont use references stance jajaja !!!
