What you didn't memorize my stats from my intro thread?

5' 9.5"
195

I'll re-measure width and post it.

I would love to get out and try it, but no snow...

I think my wife is going to kill me if I keep trying to Ollie in the living room.

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.
