Doing more experimenting, hip rotation really seems to screw up carving performance with a duck stance.

Thinking about it, it will result in the board being twisted and the tip being at a higher angle than the tail. Thus, the tip will want to turn at a shorter radius than the tail -> perfect setup for turning carves into scarves.

I now think that with the narrower stance and trying to de-rocker the board, I'm counteracting some of that board twist and what's helpful is not really straightening out the board, but the reduction in board twist.
