I went "snowboarding" last weekend, and I think I board "goofy" - Right foot forward. But my board is set up the other way, so I just turned it around, does this make a huge difference, until I can get the bindings reset? I had a hard time figuring out how to stop, and this is probably a stupid question, but could it be harder for me, since my board is not set to the right stance? Obviously I am really new at snowboarding, so I have no clue.
No problem. Even though your board is directional it can be ridden tail first. It's just normally a bit easier to ride nose first on a directional board. You don't want to make it harder on yourself, especially when you're first learning.
Usually, on a directional board, when you stand the board up, if the graphics/text etc. reads right side up, then the top of the board is the nose/front. Usually.
...and yes, If you are not confident doing it yourself? definitely get someone to put your bindings on the right way.
....on the plus side, If you have been managing, struggling, but managing, trying to ride with the board set up wrong? You will likely see a real improvement in things right away once it's set up properly!

Thanks! I definitely need to take it in to be adjusted. I have flow bindings, but the board has those long slot thingies (nice technical term for ya) and my bindings aren't made for the board, but the guy at the board shop "made them fit" as I am told. Soooo I think I will just take it to him. I got the board from a friend who got new gear, and it was set up for her.
