1/ STEP 1: Chose your forward foot 

There are two styles of riders in board sports, the "regulars", who ride with their left foot forwards and "goofies", who have their right foot forwards. 

If you don't know which way you ride your board, use the writing as a guide. The front of the board will be at the top when the board is vertical and the writing will be the right way up.

Technique No. 1: The Skateboard

When you get on a skateboard, you naturally place your right foot forwards, it is likely that you will be goofy on a snowboard.

For the 2nd technique, we recommend you spend some quality time with your family and go to ride your scooter! Your front foot on your snowboard will be the same as on the scooter.

TECHNIQUE No. 3: THE CHAIR

If you get on to a chair (without holding on to something) you put your right leg up first, you are probably goofy.

The same works with stairs, if you want to climb the stairs two-by-two and put your right leg forwards, you are goofy.

TECHNIQUE No. 4: ASK SOMEONE TO PUSH YOU (gently)

Have you already been pushed by somebody unexpectedly?
The foot you put forwards to catch yourself and regain balance will be your strongest and the one you will put forwards when snowboarding.

2/ STEP 2: PLACE YOUR BINDINGS ON THE BOARD

Now that you know in which way you will your board, you can place your bindings on your snowboard.

How to choose your stance (distance between the bindings)?

Like all other brands, Dreamscape boards have a recommended stance marker.

When you first use it, we recommend sticking to the "recommended stance". Then you can change your position depending on your sensations.

If you feel the need to widen your position, you can move your back foot back. If you want your feet closer together, start by moving the front binding back a little.

You can now do the adjusting!

3/ STEP 3: ADJUSTING THE ANGLE OF YOUR SNOWBOARDING BINDINGS

1 - WHICH ANGLE DO YOU NEED?

Perhaps you have experience, and in this case you know the angles that feel best for you on your board. If you don't know them, here is what we recommend, depending on your snowboarding level.

If you mainly ride on-piste, as well as "All Mountain" (on and off piste), we recommend that you adjust your bindings at: (-6, +18).  +18° for the front foot and -6° for the back foot. The position of the front foot is clearly at the same angle as the slope.

This position is recommended with a "directional" board. 

If you ride Freestyle or you are a beginner, you can set your bindings at a (-15, +15) angle. The position of the back foot will open to -15°, the front foot will close slightly to +15°, in "duck stance", meaning the same angle on both sides. This position will enable you to move more comfortably in both directions. Another advantage of this position is that it reduces the pressure on your knees on slopes and especially when landing jumps.

2 - HOW TO ADJUST THE ANGLE OF YOUR SNOWBOARD BINDINGS?

Start with the rear binding. We recommend that you place the arrow on your binding on the 0 (zero) on the disc.

Then place the binding on the board, the holes on the disc over the 4 holes on the "recommended stance", then move the binding back, towards the minus.

To do this, lift the binding to move it 2 clicks on the disc, each mark (click) corresponds to a 3 degree angle.

Then place the disc back on the binding and back over the holes on the "recommended stance".

Place the 2 screws in the holes in no particular position, enabling the binding to move backwards and forwards. This enables you to adjust the position of the binding lengthways and its angle, then adjust its position widthways.

Repeat with the front binding.
