Setting binding is another challenge for snowboarders, as in how to set binding and why to so-called “duck”.
Returning to the issue of the snowboard posiotion, the first point mentioned was that we set up on the board as we set binding.
It is a discipline to snowboard, where snowboarders ride on a hard board and hard boots (similar to skiing ;)).
Settings binding for this type of board is sharp around 55 degrees for the front binding and 50 degrees for the back binding.
Setting snowboard binding on the board to snowboard cross is also sharp about +25-30 degrees for the front binding, and 0 – (-5) degrees for the back binding.
Position and alpine snowboard cross is an open position. This means that the body is turned to the front of the board, not set sideways, because of sharper settings of the
Setting binding front (duck) at + 15-20 degrees, and – 5-15 degrees for the back binding. The position of snowboarding as we set the binding is sideways.
Why should we set the binding like so-called “duck”? This setting is universal. It is the most natural position without burdening the ankle, knees and the hip. This allows us to ride on the edge, switch, and do basic freestyle tricks on the slopes and in the park.
