HELP I think topsheet was put on backwards!
I need some help here. I just got a new board online that was delivered today, but I think the topsheet was put on the board BACKWARDS. This is suppose to be a Directional Twin board with a setback of 10mm according to the website and the paperwork on the board. On all my other directional boards with a "setback" it usually means the nose is longer than the tail. In the board that was just delivered, the nose is "SHORTER" than the tail, I measured from the tip of the board to the first set of binding holes and from the top to the first holes it is 16 inches. Then I measured from the tail of the board to the first set of holes and it is 17 inches, meaning, the tail is LONGER and the nose is SHORTER. Therefore, I am thinking that the topsheet was installed upside down. Can I get some opinions on this? Here are a few photos with the tape measure.
I'd hate to mount the bindings and ride the board "upside down" as I'm sure everyone on the mountain will come up to to me telling me that my bindings are mounted on the board wrong - or worse yet, they don't say anything and think I'm an idiot. Opinions please!!!
Would you keep the board and just turn the board backwards and mount the bindings so that the nose is 17" to the first set of holes and the tail is 16" from the end to the first set of holes or am I missing something?
I learned to snowboard at 50! woo hoo!
