Windham Try setting our bindings to 15,-15 - 18, -18 and put the stance fairly wide on your snowboard. It will be easier to learn how to carve with a wider stance. Do not switch the bindings around, because it will only mess you up when you switch them again and you'll be even sloppier when it comes to riding switch again. Just set the bindings equal and practice carving and such with a wider stance.

nerickson I think you should learn to ride switch without flipping your bindings around because that way you'll be more used to it once you start doing park.

switch-favoring setup?

So, I have a directional all-mountain board, and I was wondering if it would help me learn to ride switch better if I were to flip the bindings around so that the board is set up for a goofy rider? I already have my angles at 12/-12 and my stance is ~22.5" setback .5" (.5 setback = reference). Was wondering if flipping that so that everything's the same, cept the tip/tail in opp. directrions would help? (I would make it so that the bindings would be setback .5" towards the new tail, and keep the angles/width) Thoughts?

And no, I wouldn't leave it there forever, I'll switch it back once I get better switch, so that I can start really doing spins and park stuff confidently.
