Old    a newcomer to wakeboarding in Munich            07-31-2001, 8:43 AM Reply   
Hi my name is Ed I have started Wakeboarding 3 weeks ago at a cable park near me In Munich Germany. I have just bought a 2nd hand Hyperlite Vero 143 with powerboot bindings.
I ride regular , but I am trying to learn how to ride goofy as well and also my first attempts @
180's..mostly I faceplant !

anyway my Question is this
There seem to be endless possibilities for positioning these bindings on the board...

Where do I start ?

I guess I will end up trial and error till I find a comfortable riding position , but some initial
sound advice would be greatly appreciated

Best regards
Ed (a newcomer to wakeboarding in Munich)

Ed, lots of threads on this one. Everyone's stance is different, so only use this as a rule of thumb - not a defacto standard.

1. Stance about shoulder width apart
2. In your home, jump up with your eyes
closed and notice how your feet are
positioned when you land on the floor.
3. Set your bindings to be similar to the
stance you landed barefoot.
4. Make adjustments as needed.
