Centered stance on my jones mountain twin Ltd?

Hello everyone,

New to the forum, joined for some advice. I'm relatively new to boarding and I got the jones twin Ltd on recommendations, although it's a fast board for a beginner I love it..

I got my wife to take a picture of my stance and noticed it was more tail end than centered. I know it has a 20mm setback although I don't really know what that means to be honest.

What I wanted to know is how do I set it up for a centered stance/ can I on this board?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Chris

Hello Chris,

And welcome to the forums! 20 mm setback means that the inserts are moved 20 mm (or approx 4/5 of an inch) towards the tail of the board, so it sounds like the setup is like it should. (Additionally, this is measured between the contact points and not from tip to tail. Since the tip is usually a bit longer than the tail this can also trick your eyes.)

yea most Jones boards are directional cambers meaning they will be more centered towards the tail than the tip so as long as you have them on the same set of binding insert holes then ur doin it right

Ah ok, would it hurt putting the bindings toward the centre or is it a case of, it's a directional board and that's how it is?

This is how I have it at the moment. Both bindings are one set of holes in as ref stance is 23" so it's now 21/22...

looks about right. generally you don't want to move them to the center of the board because the torsional flex of the board is designed to have the bindings where the default holes are drilled(which for this is setback). Centering on a directional board may cause you to have a harder time turning and lose stability since the board will be harder and uneven flex than it was designed for. If your just doing regular riding/carving etc. setback is not that bad in fact its suggested for powder, it just might feel slightly awkward riding switch.

Oh ok, what about a little bit of park, the odd kicker or flat box? Is it fine for that?

I think this is more to personal preference. I don't like the feel of directional boards on mid+ jumps, on smaller ones it shouldn't be a problem either way. Boxes doing 50-50 isn't a problem, but board slides and fancier stuff probably feel super weird (I personally wouldn't do them on bigger directional boards but i'm sure there are better people out there).

For little park stuff, directional is completely fine. you might run in to some frustration if/when you start trying to do a lot of spins or more jibbing but for anything lite, you will be fine. Switch may feel a little less natural than on a true twin but not to the point that it'll be impossible.
