I know a lot of people who ride with a forward stance...most shops and instructors will recommend a forward stance for beginners because it helps you get comfortable facing downhill and linking turns while riding regular. It does however make learning switch more difficult later on as my wife is now finding out. Every time I try to switch her bindings to duck she can't stand it and has me set it back to 15/5 like she's been riding for the last 5 years.
