Default My stance change

Hello

First of all, I'm 5' 11", 190lbs, UK size 10 boot.
Board in question is my 2011 Burton Sherlock(hard to let it go) 157.
Generally like to freeride, love powder, hit natural kickers sometimes.
From Scotland.

Still bit of a noob on here, but been boarding for 3 years and still experimenting with my stance now and then, seeing what I like best for different situations, and after a recent trip to Austria I managed to video myself a lot to pick up on any faults I have, and after watching videos I could see I was twisting my hips a lot to steer my board, and my back foot on a carve was coming round too much and ruined my carving pattern in the snow I was looking for.
So I found and felt I was standing too straight legged.

So what I've done, at home, is widened my stance, and have found a very comfy position, haven't tested it yet, will be on Thursday, but even though it's very comfy and I feel a lot more in control when I strap my boots in, I worry it may be too wide as it's 27" from centre to centre????
I know it's different and a personal thing, but most people I see are 24" or under.

Just seems wide but somehow feels better, help me out.

Thanks
