i'm about to go +9/-15 after trying out my gf's board which is set up goofy +15/-9.. fixed a problem i have with.. slightly longer lead leg (maybe like 3mm). makes it easier for me to transfer weight front/back. within the first run my riding effort went down and everything felt more natural. guess the point is try different things, might be surprised at the improvement it makes.
