How to set up and install snowboard bindings

Updated on October 21, 2009

Installing bindings:

Regular or Goofy?

The first step in the binding install process is determining if you are regular or goofy. How you can tell is by first determining which foot you would kick a ball with. This is the foot you want at the back of the board. So if you kick a ball with your right foot this would make you regular. If you kick with your left this would make you goofy. The reasoning behind this is that you want your stronger more dominant foot at the back of your board. locate the front of your board and install the bindings accordingly.

Determine the Angle your Binding will sit on the board.

When attaching your bindings to your snowboard you will notice this is done by securing disks to your board. These disks allow you to angle your bindings accordingly. If your a beginner best to go with a simple stance.

Put your front foot/binding at 15 degrees and back foot at negative 3 degree's. This will make sense when you install your bindings for the first time. The reason for this setup is the 15 degree's on the front allows for a more natural feel when learning. Your toes will be pointed downhill and heal will be pointing uphill giving your front foot a directional stance.

The negative 3 degrees on the back foot is to avoid a 0 degree stance which can cause damage to your knee overtime. This stance should look like the image below when you are done.

Attaching Bindings to your board

Use a Philips screwdriver to install the hardware, put all 4 or 3 screws in loosely then slowly tighten all screws repeatedly a half turn at a time. Don't tighten to hard as you may create a bump in your base. To be safe you can put your hand on the base of the board and feel for the screw when tightening.

*If you have any questions at all feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them.

      Наверное, у многих еще свежи воспоминания о жевательной резинке, которой были забиты все ларьки СНГовины. Это *Love is...* Так вот. Подрабатывала я в юности реализатором в ларьке. Пиво всякое, сигареты и пр. В том числе конфетки-жвачки-шоколадки. Вижу в окошко как-то,выходят из машины и приближаются два мужчины среднего возраста: один постройнее, другой попузатее и помордатее. Стройный подходит к окошку, покупает пару пива, отходит с Мистером Пузо, пиво выпивается. Приближается к ларьку толстячок, в окошко засовывается от такенная рожа и изрекает:

      The kick a ball method is flawed but so is the push-up example. For most people these will work 95% of the time but some people are REALLY GOOFY. My kickboxing stance i keep my right leg back it is my better attacking foot, i kick a ball with my left foot, for pushups i push off the ground with both feet just after using both arms to fire myself back into the air and landing on my feet.

      The "kick a ball" method is garbage; sliding across a slippery floor or gtting up from the pushup position is the best way to determine your dominant foot. By your method, I'd be "normal", but I am actually "goofy".
