Default Binding set up.

Random question, Do you guys/girls have your bindings set up the same distance from the nose/tail on both ends?

My rear binding is closer to the tail thann the front is to the nose.

I ride centered but thats just my preference. Often the set back stances and what shops will set up for beginners as it can be easier. I'll shift mine back if there is massive poweder and i wanna keep the nose floating a little more

Some boards come with a default set back between 1cm and 2 inches depending on the board model. These also have a set back side cut and flex so you dont want to move the stance to centered on these boards because it will mess with how it rides. They have a directional shape. Boards with a centered stance have a twin shape, typically with an even flex and a side cut that is meant to be ridden forward and switch.

Nice job of crossing the measurement system divide.

lol, I can't wrap my head around it. It's like asking me to figure out: 5 + broccoli = ?

Anyways, I ride dead center, but I never TRIED riding otherwise.

My suggestion was not to change it. You can't center your stance on a significantly setback board. Well you can but it's not smart.

And I said 1cm to 2 inches because thats how they're listed. You never see a board listed with .4in (1cm) or 5.1cm (2in)
