For 6'1 that is some narrow ass stance...

But its all preference really. Whatever feels most comfy for you would be my answer, but thats probably not what you are looker for. In general most people feel buttering is easier with a wider stance since it helps u to press the board better and can be more stable by lowering your centre of gravity. But too wide is going to impinge on bending your knees, which means some of the pop u need to do some rotational spinning butters off flatground will be compromised. Why dont you try widening your stane gradually and see how it goes.

Man, 21.5 at 6'1 is some narrow ass stance...
