And in this next clip, we're going to go over how far apart your snowboard bindings should be. On every snowboard, there's a thing called a reference point. It normally has some sort of asterisk or mark showing you the recommended stance width, but you have to understand there are different styles require different widths. Some people ride in park, they might go wider. Some people ride in, you know, big mountain, may go narrower. Some people just doing all around might strictly stay at the reference point. So each snowboard will have a mark, normally centered in the middle of the whole pattern, where the reference point is, and a lot of the times the reference point tends to be the width of your shoulders. Performance wise, the distance between your stance... having it wider than the reference point might be easier for sliding hand rails, jibbing around, or riding switch. Having it more narrow from the reference point might be easier for carving, high speed turns... and then basically staying at the reference point might be better for all around, whether you're riding park at the beginning of the day, and then you're going to big mountain. It'll best suit you for all around needs. And that's how you're going to basically determine the stance width between your bindings.
