Default zero is fine

Heck yeah riding at 0 degrees is ok! It all depends on you and what is more comfortable for you. If you feel comfortable when you ride at 0 degrees then who cares what anyone else thinks? Unfortunately, most people that ride with their feet ducked out are only doing it because they think it looks cool or because their favorite pro rides like that. They don't understand the actual mechanics behind it. I ride at 15 and -12 for my wider stance because with my feet that wide it would tweak my knees too much to keep them straight up and down at 0. With a narrower stance I might change my degrees to 12 and -12 or 12 and -9 or something like that. Everyone is different. A lot of times in the snowboarding magazines they will interview a pro and list his or her configuration and you'll notice that it varies a lot between the riders and the type of riding that they do. Good luck and happy shredding
