Default getting to know stance is too narrow and finetuning it

so the other day I used for the first time my new setup (some pics here http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-my-turn.html )
The instructor, as soon as he saw the board said the stance needed to be widened. I thought I had done everything I read here and other site, so it should have been ok. But then I rode the board, and i had no control of my nose, and neither the board.
So after that I widened and it was like night and day! completely different. But now I wonder about it again, if it might need another touch, just a bit wider. How would I know? Is there something to know your stance is still too narrow? maybe some sore leg muscle used in the wrong way? It seems experts can do it jut watching your board...
