I thought, I had a really wide stance, when I was using close to 27" (I'm 6'2").

The reference stance for your board is 22" - so you are way, way beyond that. I would expect some board performance issues because of that (i.e. the flex pattern is designed with the reference stance in mind).

IME, carving is more difficult with the wider stance and the negative effect of hip rotation is larger.

It doesn't hurt to try, but make sure to bring tools...
