I am riding 16/-15 . duck I started out with something more along the lines of 20/5 it if I remember correctly. I remember that I did that because the shop that I bought the board recommended that for a beginner and also read online that beginners should have the rear close to 0. I remember that it felt incredibly awkward. I road like that for a year and I think it set me back. I originally dismissed the awkward feeling of it because I was new to the sport, everything could be expected to feel awkward right? no not true if found out. Once I switched to duck it felt really natural.

SA Addiction: so why do some instructors/shops recommend 20/5 for beginners? Is there anybody reading this still riding this way and feeling comfortable with it? Maybe duck stance just worked for me.
