How do I know what stance angles to use for my snowboard bindings?

Choosing your Snowboard Stance Angle

The stance angle of your bindings is really a matter of personal preference.

  • Beginners tend to angle their front foot to get them leaning downhill while keeping the back foot straight with little or no angle.
  • Racers tend to angle both feet quite a bit to really crank on their turns.
  • Park and pipe riders will sometimes angle both feet in opposite directions outward. This is called a "ducked" stance and is ideal for riding both regular and switch.
