Well… I dont "think" I am leaning backwards… but… well…

I am riding a fixed gear for quite a long now… so I usually dont have the problem leaning forward. In the end, it's all physics. You cant fall forward.

But, I will definitely film myself… or let be filmed, so I can check it out.

Try modify your bindings to reduce some of the setback, and then give it a shot. I really can't recommend much else, as I have no experience with directional boards. One of the more experienced snowboarders will probably have more advice for you than I can offer, so keep an eye out.

I have a friend who got a Crail for his first board, I don't think it's a bad choice for a beginner board. I'd only recommend a larger size. I've just never used a directional board, as I like to ride switch a lot.

What could be the reason for that?
In addition my front foot starts hurting as well very quickly (regular)…
As Edge recommends find the center then equal distance from the center. Other than that ur a newb, take a lesson or two and don't worry about the chatter/flapping and if your foot is hurting ur a newb and get your boots fitted.

Well…*my boots seem to be fine, more or less…
I was in this shop for hours and tried almost EVERY model they had.
Maybe they are a little too softy…
Since I bought them new last season, I will try to go with them, at least this season. I am going to tape my feet the next time.

since most of the big dogs got your issue well in hand and I didn't see anyone answer this simple question for you so I can help with that.

OP = Original Poster as there are many people that chime in to help it is just a short hand way to reference you or your question.

Thanks for all the advises.

@Snowolf:
How do I initiate the turns: I lean forward (weight into the front feet) and move my toes/feet up/down or/and my knee left/roght to initiate – somtimes, the turn is already done by that point. But sometimes, yes, I use my backfoot to steer around. Then I realize, I shouldnt have done that and I try to make it better the next time.

When I am doing "smaller" faster turns, I am kinda jumping up and down (going into the knees) and just pushing out left/right

What are my shoulders doing at the same time… havent really thought about it. I'll try to look into it.

Please dont laugh now…

So, since it is cleared that my board is a directional board and has a natural setback. Would it be ok, if I use the "front" holes for both my bindings? That way I would have the most "twin" experience, right?
And since the holes are made by the boardmakers, I shouldnt "loose" any of the pop or flex?

@slyder: Thanks for the info.

Edit: You can tell, I am not a natural speaker… sorry for the inconvinience…

Its a Crail. Its a basic board. I don't think there's any carbon and I think it's just biax glass.

Its just not going to be a damp board.
