yea i agree with that but i think it really depends on what youve been riding before. and if it was rentals, most likely it isnt the duck. it took me a few days to go from 15/0 to 15/-15 with the same confidence while learning switch. i just raised it 6 degrees til i rode well with it, then raised it another 6, etc.

fredericp64 Considering it's a twin board, I'd assume you'll want to ride switch. 15/-15 duck stance is excellent for that.

As for waxing, some say do wax it and some say don't. I say do it because factory wax is (generally) made to keep the board looking fresh in the shop and not to ride down the mountain.

A buddy of mine took his new custom out for 7 trips before waxing it while my wax came off after 2 runs. Your call.

Waxing is 15$ at the resort and 50 cents if you do it yourself.

bluddah i believe the rental places here on the mountains do front foot 15 and rear foot at 0 or -3 degrees if you dont tell them what degree you want.. so you might want to start with that and go from there. i usually put 15 and -3 for beginner friends that dont know what degree they want and it ends up fine.

SB SCRUB ok thanks.

RickyBobby Front foot 15 degrees

rear foot -6 degrees

try this first and make adjustments as necessary. You will find setup that works for you.

SB SCRUB ok thanks. which foot is usually angled more the front? ive gone snowboarding many times before i just never paid attention, and also they were directional shape boards. whats a common degree setup?

wolfbaden6 It shouldn't need to be waxed beforehand, but definitely after a few days of use.

The bindings should be set up for your comfort and riding style. Nobody can give you a straight answer on that, only recommendations.
