Couple board set up questions....

Ok, one of my friends bought a starter board and bindings. I waxed his board, and now I'm trying to mount the bindings..

1) There isn't a reference to where the center is. Do i just assume that it's the middle-most screws?

2) I can't seem to get the high back parallel with the board. There is only 2 adjustment spots. Should i just set the bindings at an angle that has the high backs parallel with the side cut of the board? Or is it not that important to have the bindings parallel with the side cut?

3) If i can't get the high backs parallel with the side cut is it better to have the high backs turn towards the center of the board, or towards the ends of the board?

1) Yes. Or more accurately, it's the centre of the long section between the middlemost sets of screw holes.

2) It's most important to set the stance angles of the bindings, before even thinking about highback angles. Set your stances to whatever you want -- say, 15/-9 -- then get the highbacks as close to parallel to the sidecut as you can. Many bindings don't even have highback adjustments, so it's an optional thing.

3) This doesn't compute. The highbacks will end up either parallel to the sidecut if you have that much adjustment, or somewhere between that and "neutral" position on the binding.
