Powder Bindings Position Q?
 
I was at Baker today, and there was an insane amount of new powder, something like 2feet of fresh. So me being a n00b, I kind of struggled, got better by the end of the day, but oh boy, I was getting stuck left and right. So I was wondering, if I set my bindings a notch or two towards the back of the board to help lift the tip, will it make a HUGE difference in powder days, or will it be a MINIMAL improvement?

What do you guys say, tell me from experience. Because next time, I won't be lazy, and I'll actually move the bindings. :cheeky4:

Thank you.

Big difference. If you don't have a true powder board set those bindings back.

I ride a 172 Lib Skunk Ape, it's a big, wide surfboard, It's good in powder, I think the problem is ME, but again, I want to do everything possible to help me get better.

Get those bindings all the way back, lean back and carry speed

o ya it will be a huge diff. i have a 164.5 trice and when i set back the bindings it was like crazy how much it helped. my problem in pow is my weight. my big ass just sinks.

interesting…. I'm 225lbs, and I find myself sinking as well …



look at the tip of that board, always up … hmmmm might have to buy another board …

how are shallow tails, on groomers, and non pow conditions… obviously you cant ride switch…

realy? i might look into that but we dont have that many pow days for me to get one of those. i just hit 280 and dropping every week.

On a groomer you wont even know you are riding a swallowtail. Its big taper that makes a board not want to carve as good.
Minimal taper is needed with a swallowtail + shovel nose.

looks like these guys are riding with positive angles on their bindings… that would be weird to get used to.
