How tight should I strap in?

Can anyone tell me how tight I should be strapping into my bindings? Any advice or tips would be great!

however tight to keep your boots in place but not to make your feet hurt.

give it time, youll figure your own preferences with experience...

I find that my rear boot I strap in much tighter, it gives me more control. If I overtighten my front one, my foot goes numb.

thats where toe caps/straps come in to help kinda of hard to tighten it so tight over the toe that it hurts, since that is one of the more supportive places on the boot.

I keep mine pretty tight, but it's all personal preference. I know some people who keep theirs relatively loose and they are amazing snowboarders.

I ride with mine to the point of my front foot going numb if I don't lossen it up on the lift, that's why I just loosen it up before I get on the lift.
