Carving, Bindings Set In Middle, Or To Rear ..?

Relative Beginner,

Advice Please, Going Tinges In 2 Weeks, With Skiers.
So I Want To Go A Little Faster, Carving Looks Great ( Thats When Watchin The Pro,s )
Am I Correct In Saying That That The Bindings Should / Can Be Set Slightly Back
Rather Than In The Middle For Better Carving, ( This Advice Is From Some Pro,s On You Tube ) Etc

Cheers Jack.

I would set them up centered within the insert pack, which is generally how boards are intended to be mounted. That could mean centered if you have a true twin board, or with setback if you have a directional board. You may be more comfortable with directional carving with a forward stance as well.

If you mean set back towards the tail that would be a yes and a no. AAA's right some boards have a setback and that means the sidecut is also set back as is the flex. Set them up in the center of the inserts.
