Which end is up (front)

I get to the mountains once a year and get three days on the slopes. I'm old and mostly stick to skis, BUT if conditions are right (not too crowded), boarding is a blast. Anyway, I recently purchased a bunch of cheap equipment - separately, which should satisfy the limited time and ability I have. Now I have to mount the bindings and there's plenty of good advice - I'm probably ignoring the best advice - have a pro do it. However, there's no printing on my board and I don't know which end is the front. The mounting holes are offset about 1.5 inches nearer to one end then the other. The curvature of the tips are not obviously different. There is a printing near one end of the base (bottom). I believe it says 155cm. My thoughts are that for my purposes, it won't make much difference, but I'd appreciate anyone else's thoughts. For what it's worth I ride goofy.

You likely got a twin board so it doesn't matter. However from a perspective of sanity, whichever direction allows you to properly read what's on the board, from top down makes the top the front usually. If the holes are close to one end more than the other, the close end def would be the rear.

No he doesnt have a twin board if the inserts are set back closer to one end than the other so it does matter which way they go.

The inserts are closer to the tail. So you have more board at the front of the board than at the back.
