So i have recieved my Liquid Force Ps3 package with Domain bindings and i was wondering where i should mount the bindings. I will most likely be riding switch some of the time, if that matters. Thank you guys for all the help.

Wherever is comfortable. Jump in the air and note how your feet come down. This will give you an idea of your body's natural position of stability. Personally, mine are mounted on the wide side, toed out just a little bit.

General thought process on this is when learning go just beyond shoulder width as you continue to progress go to the widest setting on your board giving you a wider stance for more shock absorption and increased ability to balance and recover. Hope this helps.

two things to deal with here, stance width and angle. guys above me have covered stance width. basically a bit wider than your shoulder width, find one that you feel comfy on, and can do squats easily.

placement wise, you want the bindings to be set so that it is symmetrical either way forward. having bias to one side/angle would just discourage you from riding/landing switch properly, and you lose out on a lot of essential foundation skills if you ride this way.

as for the angle (i.e. how much the toes are pointed outwards), many recommend to start at the standard of "12" marked on your board - that should be the position that is slightly more 'duck foot' than the normal standing position. being a little bit more duck footed like this helps your balance while squatting/standing up. put it in that position, put the board on carpet, get into them and fiddle around, adjust as you see fit
