|TofuSama||Thank you for that, I didn't know they had that.|

Why not contact SantaCruz and ask? They would know the specs for this board, even if it is not on their current web site.

FWIW, negative setback (towards the nose) would be pretty exotic.
Another possible check to make is to measure the width. If one end is a little wider, this will be the nose.

Thank you, that confirms what I had thought, as I placed the stomp pad there.
I have ridden this snowboard once, but my main confusion is in finding that the binding setback appears to be around 6cm towards the nose, making the tail longer, while the normal offset is towards the tail, making the nose longer. It's fairly perplexing

|DC5R||The Santa Cruz logo is on the tail side. Another tip-off is the stomp pad...it's usually located on the tail end of the board.|

here's the best way I can tell you... if you can read santa cruz stand the board straight up,
where you can read it.. and whichever end is up once you do that is the nose.
hope this helps you dudeness.

Snowboard Binding Offset
I'm fairly new to this, I just started snowboarding in December, so after my third time, I picked up a used snowboard. It appears to be twin tip Santa Cruz snowboard, with little to identify it other than X156 SSC. I've begun to start toying with my settings a bit, and when I started looking at my stance width, I read on boards having an offset. Now, here's the board, in two parts;
The assumed tail:
The assumed nose:
Now, the thing confusing me, is, as far as I can tell, based on measurements from the effective edge, end to end, and the centre to the inner binding holes, the offset appears to be 6cm towards the front of the board, that is, the distance between the tail and the rear binding holes is 6cm larger than the distance between the nose and the front binding holes. It was to my understanding that board offsets were generally rearwards, with the tail being shorter than the nose, or nonexistent.
So my first question is, is this an offset and does that type of offset exist, or am I doing something wrong?
