Is it common to have your angles at -? my feet are basically pointing outwards 15 in either direction, is that odd?
Having a negative angle on your back bindings means it's pointed outwards towards the tail. So both bindings are pointed in the opposite directions. Duck stance is fairly common these days, especially for freestyle. It's a more versatile stance if you want want to ride switch etc. Personally I find it more comfortable too. I ride 15, -15 and it's super comfortable and versatile (for me anyway).
