Similarly, which foot goes first on a skateboard? Pushing is the first and most important skill tolearn on a skateboard. Place your front foot at a45-degree angle on top of or slightly behind your front hardwarebolts.

Then, what angle should my snowboard bindings be set at?

If you want to set up your snowboardbindings correctly, your stance on a snowboard should beabout shoulder width, with approximately 15 degrees of angleon your front binding and around 0 degrees in the back.Experiment and find what's most comfortable for you, in the endit's individual preference.
