Default powder board and stance width.

I used to set way back my camber board for deep days, and it worked to somewhat diminish the back leg workout, but at the same time control of the board was not the same, not to mention washing out every other turn. So once I got my Hovercraft I kept doing the same on deep pow days.

I am now convinced that is wrong. both boards should be ridden centered and respecting your stance ( mine is 20.5 / 21 ). I started pay attention to that and realized that moving both binding as far back as possible would give me a stance of about 23.5 / 24, way wider than I like. SO I finally marked the spots on both boards where my stance width takes me, no matter the conditions, and the board (Hovercraft) performed much better.

How do you guys deal with deep days? What do you think?
