Here is a link to the boards. Based on the specs... I think the Avalanche series of boards by Virus (there are several other models they sell) have a normal width profile. I checked and the Burton Custom X 160 cm board is actually narrower than the Avalanche FR - so you should be able to use the same stance as you would a regular freeride board (provided you don't have size 12+ feet... but since you are 5'9" 130lbs, I thought that was unlikely).

PM poutanen for final details soon (like tonight)!
