Default Need advice on angles/ bindings

Not sure if I should post this in the binding section so I figured this would be a pretty good place, here's my issue. I get on the lift with left foot strapped in, but I go down the hill right foot forward, I have my left foot set at -3 and my right at+17 is this weird? Basically I'm going down the hill with my tail forward. What could I change?

Well you could just place your bindings in the right spots? Like flip them around so your front foot is on the front of the board..... this almost seems like a troll as its pretty obvious. You could also get on the lift like the rest of us with your front foot strapped in.

I'm the same way, I get off the lift regular, but ride goofy. I'm set at 15/-8

Don't worry about as I find its a great way to practice your weakness and get better at switch.

And if your board is directional, get of the lift on your tail, but ride down normal.

i might not understand but doesnt sound like you need to change anything. basically you just prefer to ride the lift switch

.unless you're on a directional board setup for a regular rider. you ride goofy so make sure your board is setup that way

I'm actually not trolling I'm fine getting off the lift, I was just wondering if it was weird & if anybody else is the same, I was also looking for binding angles to tryout ! Thanks for the replies anyways

My board is setup normal, but I ride switch down the mountain basically,

In reality, you should be able to ride and get off the lift both ways. Ride down the mountain both ways, and be as good riding normal as you are goofy.

Angles, play around until you find what works for you.

I can ride goofy, toe and heel & regular heel, still working on the toe though,
Thanks for helping I'll play around with angles a bit more and find what works!
