I started in the early 90's when EVERY board was set up with the back foot at 0, and the front at around 25-30 degrees. I started experimenting when I got my own boards and finally found that about -12/+12 is right for me. Remember there are pros that ride +10/+30, and there are pros that ride -15/+15 so neither position is "right".

Since you've been boarding at 0/0 I say start small and go with something like -6/+9 or -9/+9 and go from there. No point in changing TOO much at once.

Edit: Here's a couple sites showing what some of the pros ride. The first site almost all of them are asymmetrical duck (higher front angle, but still a negative rear angle), other sites show various results...
