Taking the bindings off of a board

Hey i just bought a Forum Manual 147 board its my first pro board, I've just had an airwalk up until now, but anyways I have these bindings on my airwalk board that I wanna take off and put on my Forum board. Is it difficult to take them off and put them on my new board? Should i get a store to do it? Is there a special way to put them on or any special tools?

There is this special tool called a screw driver. I guess you could go 2 a store if you can't get it off. They should probably do it for free.

Lol thanks for the sarcasm thats what i thought but i didn't wanna screw anything up, i'd heard about them going on in a special way and stuff like how they're positioned on the board and didn't wanna fuck anything up too bad cuz i've never done this before.

You should realy by some new bindings. Don't contaminate the new board with some crappy old ones.

You're right Grimdog I should

Thing is my money is being saved for a car right now, i bought this cuz it was such a good deal and I needed a new board. There are a lot of bindings that are on clearance now too though so I might have to get some of them. If you're curious the old bindings are some 51 50 brand that I went out and bought at a local outdoors store the night before I went snowboarding for the first time that season cuz I realized my boots didn't fit into the bindings i had lol.

Oh and do I have to angle the bindings a certain way or do they only fit on one way?

you can angle them anyway you want, but most people have the first binding at a 15 degree angle and the back one at a 6 or 9 dgree angle.

You angle them however you want them set. And...5150 bindings...you should probably invest in some new ones, especially since the seasons coming to an end and the sales are good.

But just unscrew and move them over, and that should be good enough.

Bindings: Burton Missions 07

Great thanks for the info. And yea, the board is mostly for next season cuz I don't wanna pay full price in the winter so I suppose I should get some cheap new bindings too.

Get some new bindings and borrow your parent's car for an extra month.
