Is it strange to run your binding angle -/+?

Ive noticed everyone who has posted a setup on here has a 0 or + front foot and a +,- or 0 back foot.

I run my bindings -6/+9, is this odd to anybody? I feel very comfy like this and actually decided on it becuase when i used to skateboard if u put my typical ollie stance into Degrees my rear foot went + and my front was -. I havent had problems with my knees or ankles hurting and actually find doing my spin tricks easier.

Anyone else run there angles like me or am i just really retarded?

are you tall? youre probably bow legged. not trying to make fun of you at all but bow legged people usually have an inverted duck stance.

What do you mean by ollie stance? Do you mean the way you position your feet right before you ollie? That's really not a good way to translate your stance to snowboarding; you should probably think of using a "landing" stance instead.

Pretend you're on a snowboard and jump as high as you can, your stance angles should be similar to how your feet are positioned as you land.

Are you able to W sit (feet to the side)? Are you able sit indian style (legs crossed)? What is your stance width? Some people develope rotated hip joints as they grow. You could be like my friend that can't sit indian style to save his life and was using 0/0 angles when he was at 22" stance.

Ollie stance refering to how i pop my ollie and land it.

On mu skateboard my pop stance for a ollie had my back foot very positive almost parralel to the board and my front foot slightly negative, i gained a lot more hieght with ollies this way for some reason, and upon landing my back foot still on the positive side would land above the rear trucks and front would be around 0 degrees to maybe 2 degrees negative(u cant specificaly tell degrees on a skateboard so these are estimates.)

So i translated that to my snowboard, thought about keeping the fromt foot at zero but then thought about when i start learning swicth ill want the front and back foot to be as close to the same as possible, mirrored of course.


Ive riden my snowboard -/+ a couple tines on some kickers and i am very comfotable riding up to and landing tricks, when i set my board at 0/0 or +\- i start to lose comfort witch seems to affect my height and landings.

The hospital numerouse times over my years of skateboarding and never once had any hip joint problems brought to my attention. As for my stance width its 21.5"

Are you pigeon-toed when you are walking normally? If so, I can see why your stance might feel comfortable. Otherwise, it seems strange and inefficient to me.
