As the others have said, make sure you send your inertia forward first. From a standing position, drop your legs and weight onto your nose until it's loaded, and in the same motion switch your weight to the back and lift up your front foot.

I'm 5'7 as well and use a 22.5 ish stance like Cheese, anything wider just limits your range of motion.

And if you can fit into skinny chicken leg jeans, it's probably time to bulk up those quads up.
