snowsam17 What he did was adjust the forward lean of ur binders. Most likely he did this because a)you were not bending your knees enough or b) you were not getting enough power on your heelside turns. Forward lean is usually helpful when turning, but if you end up doing any boxes or rails, you are going to want to reset the lean back to zero.

As for binding angles, whatever feels comfortable to you is best. Start with something around 15/-6 and then tweak it from there, unless you are riding switch a lot, in which case try something more along the lines of 15/-15.

Binding Tuning Questions

I went snowboarding for the first time in December and I am hooked. I took the class in Breckenridge also, which was awesome. We were going up the lift after about 45 minutes. My question is about the tuning of the bindings.

I was riding, and the instructor must have noticed something about how I was riding, because he said he wanted to tune my bindings. I gave him my board, and he adjusted the highback piece (not sure of the terminology) so that the high back was more at a forward angle than straight up. What did he see? What does this adjustment actually do for you?

Also, I know there are various angles you can set the base plates to, is this just for comfort or riding, or is there some fundamental reason for having them a certain way?

Is there a How-to, or some site that explains what all the different modifications and their reprecussions are?

Thanks
