Is my trick rear toe plate too rotated?

What angle should my back foot be? I thought it was the more the merrier, but maybe not?

Also what do people think of skiers who ski slalom and trick with opposite foot forward, how weird is that? I think Joel Poland does that.

    The angle of the toe plate isn't that far off - most skiers run very close to 45deg, but don't be afraid to experiment and see where you are more comfortable. However, it does look like the rear plate is too far back. As a rule for beginning and intermediate trickers you want the rear toe plate as close to the front binding as you can get it. Once you start doing flips and ski lines, then more separation can help.

    As for slalom and trick opposite foot forward, that's weird and just plain stupid unless you are Joel Poland.
