Just got my first board...Need Some Help.

I just got my New Nitro Target 161 board, Link bindings, and a pair of DC Phase boots. The boots are size 11. So Im trying to mount my bindings. I'm angling them to prevent toe drag and putting my toe and heal right over the edge. The only way this is working is with a +45* angle in the front and a -40ish in the rear. Is this too much? It feels a little weird.

i would say that +45 and -40 is too much. if your just starting out maybe even put your back foot at 0. personally i ride around -9 and +15 . its not too much but its a good setting. i would play around with it but i think 45 is too much.

lol, just a bit to much. You should look at your heel area on your binding and on most bindings you can slide the heel back to get less toe overhang. You also don't need to completely eliminate any toe and heel overhang, they won't nessacarily drag. since your a beg. and most likely aren't throwing insane turns you'll be fine. -9 to 12 and 0 to 3. If you start going more freestyle you can "duck" your stance more -15, +15 or even up to -21 but you knee will end up hurting.

lol...I never noticed the heal adjustment. I got it set to 15-15 and it feels alot better. I like the duck stance better than a forward. Thanks 4 the help.
