SL reference binding mounts?

Which holes are the reference mounts for the Never Summer SL. I'm used to boards marking the reference mounts but my SL doesn't seem to have any indicators.

It's weird they have chosen to put 6 holes in a row so you cannot be centred in the inserts, you have to be slightly forward or back. I'm sure my other boards had 7 holes.

for example:

( :: :: )

Your stance width is not determined by the board though so it really doesn't matter, figure out what offset and stance width you want and then use the appropriate holes.

Try throwing on your boots and standing in the bindings and seeing how it feels.

I'm probably not understanding this properly but wouldn't this be centred?

Yes but that narrows the stance width, so it's hard to say whether that is the "reference width" if there is such a thing.

I'm not gonna go pull my bindings to check, but I'm quite positive it's labeled right on the board.

Reference Points are only a recommended starting point!!!!!

Just bolt ya binders on at the stance width you feel comfortable ridin with, and just make sure they're a "mirror image" in regards to each other!!!!!

Then ride!!!!!

If ya feel that the board is a little to hard to spin/turn, narrow the stance!!!!!

If ya feel that the board isn't as stable as you'd want, widen the stance!!!!!

This thread is from 2011 and the bump was asking about the Cobra, so why are we talking about this considering this model is discontinued?!?

Yep, seems second poster has exactly the same question about NS boards as the first poster.

A new thread might have been a sensible move
