Default 2 questions about my new board and bindings

i got a ride agenda 156 and burton custom bindings and i kept my salomon boot.. the boot doesnt fil the binding well and its size 12 . but its stable, do i need medium bindings ? i got them without trying on the boots because am 12...

2nd i thought twin tip boards are supposed to have ceentred stance, but it appeared that theyre not always centered..so do every park or halpipe guy puts the stance centered? if i put em centered my stance wouldnt be wide and i am used to ride the widest stance. sooo i dont know am sad coz the stance isn't centered

and whats the forward lean in the bindings for?

not all twin tips are true twin tips. some are directional twins, which means the nose is a bit longer than the tail. my agent is like this and i can still ride switch fine. its all personal preference. ride it for a bit then make adjustments.

also on your bindings, it looks like you can make the straps fit tighter. see the holes on the thing that the straps are attatched to? attatch them to a hole further down.

DON'T get medium bindings. Your size 12 boots would never fit. You can adjust your straps like rgwilco said. And yes it looks like you have a directional twin and not a true twin.

yeah ive already done that, that pic was before straping to the boots. they boots are stable andd steady in the bindings ..but theres like empty space from both sides like 0.8 mm or 1 cm on each side. i didnt ride it yet.

ill ride it like this (with the widest stance) ,, then ill change it so the nose and tail have same lenght from the binding, but i dont know if i can ride them close.. i am 193 or 6'5

your boots would only fill the gap in a pair of small bindings. salomons just have a slimmer footprint than burtons so when they go into burton bindings, there are gaps. just tighten the cap pretty tight (keep it comfortable though) and you should be fine. not sure why your stance isnt centered, the agenda's this year are...

if when you strap in, your boot doesn't move about, then i wouldn't worry about it. if your foot is 'as one' with your board, then its all good.

where are the gaps between boot and binder? at the toe or heel end?

as for comments on length according to length? buh? just go with what works for you. personally i have a narrow stance, coz that's the way i like it.

diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks
