    Posted: Nov/14/2006 at 7:53pm
Just curious who else out there has weird binding angles.  I am the ONLY person I know (or have heard of) who rides with my back foot more aggressive than my front, and by a good amount.  I ride at front 12, back 27!

I think it might have something to do the fact that it parallels my taekwondo stance.  Whatever it is, it helps me keep my weight on my front leg and just feels most comfortable for me.  I've tried most of the "suggested" boarding angles except duck foot, and I've never found anything that's suited me better, at least for freeriding.

Unfortunately I'm probably going to have to cut it down a bit since I'm hitting up the park a bit more this year.  I can't imagine having my bindings backward is going to help me much going fakie (if I even get to that point).

Anyone else?

dude, if you ride fakie like that, its gonna be REALLY rough...start moving your binding (rear) towards zero a little more each day until you get it back to at least zero...as far as your trailing foot having more angle than the front: its in your head....i know its hard to change things up, but it'll help you get out of your mental comfort zone and progress

oh Nu-Nu... most people have more of an angle on their front foot which of course means that when riding switch, that foot will be in the back. 
this is all pretty silly.
i don't understand how or why this guy does it, but how much does it really matter?

i think this guy is trying to say that he rides with his front foot at a +12 and his back foot at a +27.  both feet pointing the same direction.  that is pretty interesting if thats what he means.  i ride a +12 -9  stance cuz i ride alot of switch
Yo Yo u heard it from Dalicious!

See what I RIDE!

damn that's quite a forward stance, especially the back foot.. i wonder how difficult that would be if you even attempted to ride switch with those angles.

i assumed he meant negative on the back, since he said he tried other suggested stances. that's a good question though:

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuude! are you saying +/- or +/+?

logically speaking, putting that much forward angle on ur back foot is probably putting a lot of stress on ur knee if ur front one is only +9. don't you think?

It's called the "pigeon-toe" stance. Might as well have your front foot -12, and your back foot +9
