beginner binding setup

Hey guys I have just bought a forum 08 recon with ride bindings setup and i am just learning. It is a directional board but i want to still ride it fakie and be able to ollie pretty high while not sacrificing my control for sharp quick turns. I am thinking +9/-3 or +21/-9 or +20/-2. What of these would be best and if you have any other suggestions please let me know. Thanks guys!

If you're going to ride switch, I would go with a ducked stance. All your current binding settings appear to be flat to directionally oriented which may make riding switch a little more difficult.

if there is a "-" on the back foot how can it not be a duck stance?

anyway stance is personal preference, like dood said take a tool to the hill will you and experiment

i ride a +15 front foot and a -9 rear.. works well for me favoring my goofy stance but allows me to ride out switch long enough to get back flipped around.
