Hi! This is Mike at Ski Chalet. Today we’re talking about how to choose the right snowboarding gear for you. In this segment we are going to talk about how to set it all up. The first thing you need to determine is whether you like to have your right foot forward or your left foot forward. If you prefer to have your left foot forward is called the regular stance. Right foot forward is called goofy. The easiest way to determined this is to slide across the hardwood floor, whatever foot you have in front is the foot you want to have in front when you’re snowboarding. The next thing you need to know is your stance width. That is the width between your feet on the snowboard, and that’s determined by measuring from the back of your knee down to the floor. To mount your snowboard bindings is as easy as putting the plate into the hole in the snowboard locating the mounting holes on the board and using a Philip set screw driver, screwing down the snowboard binding into the inserts in the snowboard. So, the last thing to consider is your stance width. You go and onto take the measurement from your back of your knee to the floor and your going to measure between the whole patents on the board and that’s going to become your stance width and just go ahead and mount one binding in the middle of one sign and one binding in the middle of the other sign and your all set to go. So, that’s the rundown on how to mount your snowboard. Coming up next, will talk about the extra accessories you may need to have a good time out on the hill.
