I have time to adjust and compensate. This seems totally out of whack with what you're all saying about forward mounts being appropriate for outdoors. As you all seem to be in agreement on this, I am quite happy to be in the wrong here, but I am very curious as to your reasoning. Any explanation of this would be greatly appreciated.
Both is right, actually. The forward mount makes you put your weight on the back wheels.

Footie boots (like the others said) or basketball boots - super comfortable, but not very precise (but you don't need that for recreational outdoor skating anyway).
I literally pack my (regular, cheap) bearings - no matter if they're ZZ or RS - with white lithium grease as recommended on a longboarding forum. No need to clean them even after repeatedly skating through rain! (They're a bit slower at the beginning, though.)

I always laugh at why people think cheap for outdoors is the way to go.
