jdang307 If you can't get it perfect, I find it better to have it biased toe side than heel side (i.e. more toe hang than heel hang)

Bindings may not center your boot perfectly on the board normally, so you can adjust it that way so overhang on both sides of the binding and board are equal. Heelcup/highback adjusts boot position wrt the binding, then the disc adjustment centers the binding wrt the boot.

Your width may need adjusting after you've been to the hill and you find it is not enough or to much.

Thought I read a good width starting point was the outside width of your shoulders is the inside width of your bindings but you will need to verify that. I personally ride a little more narrow, that is where my comfort is at. I am trying 1" wider this season as I moved my bindings out when I prepped my board for storage this year.

I too totally hate when I catch an edge in the living room and bounce off the coffee table. Nasty bruise....

Its not the width problem as much as i can move my bindings closer toe side, or heel side. i just put them center, i did not move them closer to toe side or heel side. I mean the width may be a problem, but once i get to play around with them on the hill, I think i might be able to find the right spot for me

Skydiving is odd, once i would get home i would be doing something " bathroom, watching tv w.e" and i would realize that i just cheated death lol... I have always wanted to snowboard, i would literally forget it existed in the summer, and by time winter came by I wouldnt want to buy 1500+ in gear..

I bought all of this gear becasue I AM going all season long, sounds gay, but i just want to carve....... We all have to start somewhere i guess, the only reason i started with what i have is because I want the best set up i can get, later down the line I might buy some ns stuff or what not, but I feel " besided my bindings" that i have a total newb rig, totally set up for my weight, shoe size, etc.

If it wasnt for this forum, i would be rockin a 145 cm board @ 240 lbs, with total heel lift, uncomfy boots, gaper gap, wearing jeans, with my bindings on backwards lol....

I just need something to do in the winter tbh, this looks like something to look forward to when its crappy outside.
No I totally realize it, I'm just saying that it's not going to break you if you buy gear you don't like. I need to buy all new gear now anyway buy nice or buy twice!

I got opinions on my banana, many people don't like them. Reviews were good and bad. I researched and still bought it thinking it would fit my needs/ability, I got a good price and I truly enjoy it.

I totally screwed my self with these flow bindings, I was reading that i shouldnt use them until i acquire say 20 days of board time. I mounted them on my board, lifted the high back and locked in , pretended like i was heel side..... I totally fell backwards on my carpet.. IM CARVING THE LIVING ROOM !!!

All joking aside, I should have got rentals, I dont even know if the mounting disc's are in the right spots, i went totally center with them, i mean i spread them out on my board to a comfy stance where my knees are naturally bent forward, but I didnt like off set the front or back, i need to l2read more...
