Angling your binding toward the nose is referred to as a positive angle relative to setting your binding at zero. Setting your binding at zero aligns it completely perpendicular to the edge. Most riders will find a front binding angle of +15-21 degrees is ideal.
Should you lean forward snowboarding?

Are snowboards good for big feet?
The larger your snowboard boot is, the greater angle you must use. If your feet are really big you should consider buying a wider snowboard.

Do snowboard rails hold better at steeper angles?
Hm, I would say that with steeper angles the body of the snowboarder is better aligned for deep carving turns and the body movement is more natural, maybe even the force is more focused on to the snowboard rails, so they hold better. But I wouldn’t say that the force itself is bigger because of the steeper angles.
