It does sat its a twin with symmetrical twin flex, and the tip and tail dimensions are the same. I need to see if i can simply make it through a run without breaking a wrist before i tackle the park

Set back "helps" with powder..but doesnt make it necessarily a powder board if that makes sense

I just a couple of articles (including ones from members here) and several posts about beginner setup. I watched a bunch of youtube videos on the process of actually mounting the bindings and I'll admit it took me over an hour. But I got it and I know now how to adjust it if I find I don't like the stance or want to change the angles.

Question about set back. The board comes 2" setback, do I want to keep this or should I center the bindings more? I'm just learning and the local hill hasn't seen a snowfall in weeks (ie no powder) and I have read that the set back is good for powder riding and centered is good for freestyle riding... im not doing either.

twin89 thats perfectly fine, you do want a little bit of overhang as it helps with edge control and putting pressure on your edges

LTManiac As others have said, looks good. I have a little bit more overhang than you and I'm fine.

Also, for a fellow accountant snowboarder.

Wow...only 27 posts in before she gets harassed. Maybe new record?

The overhang is fine, and it looks like you have your bindings/boots centered properly over the width of the board so good job on that.
