Default Directional board and binding setup

If i have a directional board should my bindings be set back a bit on the back foot? Or are they OK to be centered?

Depends on the kind of riding. If your just cruising the mountain, just make sure you your front and back foot are set at the same spot on the inserts. This will give you whatever standard setback your board has. Move both front and back towards the tail for really deep riding. And if you fell like it, you can make them centered on the board, just measure from the tips to your bindings, make it even and keep your stance width.

Thanks Nivek. It sounds as if its just personal preference and not a real necessity to have it set back a bit.

My favourite riding is just going down hard and fast then doing some jumps. Usually on quite packed snow conditions. I guess my current centered stance is OK.
