Have you boarded on it yet? Something that feels weird on carpet might feel just fine on the slopes. Keep in mind your knees should be quite bent while boarding and with a duck stance that'll push them out over your feet.

My knees are most comfortable with a symmetrical -9/+9 or -12/+12 duck stance...
