I have been looking at different ways people have their wakeboard bindings setup. So far everyone has used degrees, on my bindings mine has a letter on one side (A-E) and a # (0-4) on the other on each one. What is a good place to put them as a starting point?? Right now I have it with them as far apart as they will go and set on E & 4 and left foot forward.

My foot setup is as far apart as theyll go, and a little pointed out with my front foot exaggerated a bit.

Try this. Stand on an elevated position about 1' off of the ground/floor. A step stool, rock, or stair will do fine. Turn 180 degrees on the step/rock/stair and jump onto the ground doing a 180 in flight. When you land, have a tape measure ready and measure the distance between your feet (measure from a consistent place on your foot). Also note the angle that your feet are. Do this several time. It should give you an average of distance. Now set up your board at this distance between because this is YOUR body's natural stance. You will need to adjust your angle slighly on your rear foot to be comfortable riding.

BTW, I am about 22" between with 18 degree front, 9 degree rear. 5'10" with 32" inseam.

Im 6'00" tall and ride a 141 Ronix board with my bindings at the widest setting with 12 degrees on both bindings. The majority of good riders will have 12 degrees but a few will do 15, and fewer will do 18.

I was at 18 degrees and recently dropped to 15 and it is more comfortable. I might even try 12 degrees tomorrow. :)
