Default question about setup

i have a question about my setup and possibly adjustment of the bindings.
i'm riding a new lib tech skate banana w/ some k2 cinch bindings normal stance.
when i start off the day (or after lunch), the board seems to push my back foot to the toe side. i must subconsciously compensate for it and it doesn't seem to be a big deal later on, but i was just curious what might be causing this...maybe i need to adjust my rear binding forward or backward some?

TIA

what stance do you ride? might wanna check to make sure you have equal overhang on the heel/toe of your back boot when its in the binding

+15 front (left foot), -9 rear (right foot), centered
It looks fairly even across the board, however i will double check. Which way should the boot/binding go to correct this? assuming that's the cause.

if your back foot is going toeside, then i would assume that your boot overhang is more on the toe side. It could also be a number of other things

I had the same problem with my RC board early in the season. Like Panhandler said it could be that your boots do not have equal overhang or it could be any number of things. First check to make sure your highbacks are parallel to the heal edge. What size are you, your boots and board, and what's your stance width? It might help to just open up your front foot, try +18. You could also try opening up the back foot. Having too wide a stance might also cause this swing on an RC board because you could have a tendency to put more weight on your lead foot. Be conscious of how squaring off your shoulders results in frontside swing. Use your rear toes and the ball of your rear foot to keep the board in line, or just get on edge. Familiarity with the board will help as well.

thanks for the tips...
my specs...i'm 6' 185, size 13 boot, 159w board, unknown stance width.
i had them initially mounted because I wanted an "expert" to do it...what a joke, i knew more about it by reading the instruction manual than they did. I don't think the high backs are parallel with the board...so that will be the first thing I adjust along with verifying that the boot is equally spaced.
that should give me a starting point to try...if it's still doing it, i'll throw the board away and get a new one...lol, i mean i'll come back here.

thanks again.
