I'm 6'4 and have a 25in stance, feels the most comfortable and stable.

thanks ya'll , looks like this chart isn't too real-world accurate. i probably have narrow shoulder width as well as that measurement doesn't jive either.

Not your stance problem though...

Still, I had a good laugh out of this one!

That chart can be a jump off point but, just like board length chart, it will be off for most people. I'm under 6' and ride 22.5 or 23.0

16 Gnu Swallow Tail Carver . 16 NS West . 15 NS Snowtrooper BIA
16 Burton Genesis X . 15 Now Drive
16 Flow Talon . 14 Flow Hylite
