How to Set up a Snowboard
I. You just got a new snowboard and you do not know how to put it together.
A) Regular- left foot forward, while your right foot controls turning and stopping.
B) Goofy- right foot forward, while your left foot controls turning and stopping.
C) Distance- how far apart do you want your feet to be.
II) The equipment that you will need will be the following:
A) Snowboard- long flat piece used ride across the snow
B) Bindings- attached to the snowboard used to hold your feet in place.
C) Center Plates- piece you screw down to attach bindings to snowboard.
D) Screws and Washers- used to put everything together.
III) You will be shown how to put your bindings on your board.
1) Set up
A) Make sure you have the proper tool necessary for the task at hand. In this case all you need is a phillips head screwdriver.
B) Make sure the equipment is good. For example, no stripped screws, make sure you center plate fits in your bindings, and there are no factory defaults with any of your snowboard equipment.
C) Check out your binding insert pattern on your snowboard. Determine which inserts most closely match your desired stance width.
D) Put a center disc inside each base plate and turn it to the angle you want for each foot.
E) Notice how the center disc has little rows of holes? This is so you can center your foot across the snowboard. Line up the holes in the disc with the insert holes on the board.
F) Grab a screw and a washer (they came with your bindings) and one-by-one hand thread the screws into the insert holes.
G) Tighten all the screws down with a screwdriver
