I'd suggest going with positive angles on both and adjust from there, more/less positive and tinker till you feel comfortable and can carve wicked sharp turns and maintain stability and speed on tight technical courses.
Actually, I have a small free ride board, 151, twin tip. I guess I should look for my older 154 crap board and adjust my stance.
