Gardner I'm guessing you would have a coach. You might want to talk to her/him about this Q, not people on this board who have no clue what skill level or league you might be in.

Lstarrasl You should be over on this forum: Snowboard Carving, Racing, Alpine Snowboarding - Boards, Boots, Bindings, Reviews: Bomber Online in Summit County, Colorado: Welcome! this forum is for noobs who want to show how their bindings match their Never Summer boards.

Actually, I have a small free ride board, 151, twin tip. I guess I should look for my older 154 crap board and adjust my stance.

Snowboard Racing Stance

I'm part of my schools snowboard team, which downhill races. I have a fairly short board, and have been riding duck stance ever since. I heard that racing with both bindings positive is preferred for racing. We have a training session on thursday, but I just want to know which stance I should start to use once I start to race.
