Default Buying new bindings (~$150) and question on stance...

so ive made a few threads now - i am completely buying new stuff (board, bindings, and eventually boots). ive been boarding since 2003 but only on occasion and im still using a Forum Elite 156 from 2004. im 5'11-6'0, 200lbs, size 13 boot.

i think the boots i have now might be a size too big - they're a size 13. im a size 11.5-12 typically in sneakers so i have no idea. they feel fine but who knows.

so a couple of questions:

1. probably should buy a wide board even if i get new boots in the 11.5-12 range - correct? if so i've settled on the NS Legacy or Cobra X

2. what size/brand/model bindings should i look at? i've been advised on the burton cartels

3. what is a "typical" stance for a goofy-footed rider who wants to mainly cruise but hit jumps/rails occasionally? im sure this is highly dependent but id like a starting point

1 - yes
2 - Large Burton Cartels or XL Union Force/contact pro's are a good choice
3 - -10 / +18

agree mostly, but I would start at 15/15 stance and go from there, doesnt really matter. I have enjoyed 15/18, 12/18, 12/12, lately I like 15/15. I'm big on center stance twin riding though.

I think for the stance you should play around with it.

I started out doing 12 on the lead foot and 0 on the back leg. Then moved them and played around around till I was comfortable. Now I'm at +15/-15.

Take a few runs, with each setup and find something that you feel comfortable.

the burton cartels seem to be the binding for me.
