I was most curious about the forward lean.
Yeah it all seems pretty good to me. We got none of YOUR stats though so a little hard to guess.

FWIW I'm 5'7" and ride with 21.25" stance width, -9/+9 stance.

Stance width is measured from the centre of the mounting discs.

Forward lean is good. My GF started with very little forward lean, got used to her board but was having trouble shifting from sliding to carving. We gave her a fair bit more lean and she's carving a lot better now.

Main thing is you gotta get out on it and try it! We can tell you all we know but it still might not be right for you.
