I'm sure someone with a much better understanding of this would have the answer.
I completely agree dude, height and weight and *board size (which a lot of people don't think of) are a big factor in how your board is gonna feel at a given width. I also think there are other factors as well though like- style, hips, agility and the way you've grown up accustomed to riding different things like wake boards, skate, surf etc...As well as a lot of other factors. This makes it impossible to reference a stance based on size.....So I was just being sarcastic
cause when you look at the numbers, people are defn rockin what they think feels good no matter what height and weight they are.
