A good compromise between a full on symmetrical duck stance, and a forward stance would be something like -6 or your back foot, and +15 on your front. That stance should be great for the first year or so and then start adjusting from there. If you spend too much time adjusting stance while you're learning you may have trouble learning the basics.

Have fun!
Thank you. I set them to -6 and +15 for my day tomorrow. The only concern I have now is my highbacks. I have the ladies union flite bindings and the highback is pretty flexible (which I actually like). The question is do I need to turn my highbacks parallel to the board so I am hitting them at the right angle on heelside turns? Or do you think they are ok as is considering that I didnt set them at some crazy aggressive angle?

I must also say that I am pretty pleased that I remounted my bindings myself. My husband has done it all for me until now. But I did it myself tonight.
