So just trying to get the stance width down for my set-up. According to this chart, as well as the other measuring methods (slightly wider than shoulder width, and measuring knee to heel), I should be around 20" which is the narrowest setting on my board. However, I seem to feel more comfortable (at least on the carpet at home) at the ref width of 21.7".
Do you guys find this chart accurate to your experience?

This is about the only thing I miss from DH longboarding when switching to snowboarding. The ability to instantly move your stance around when the situations suits it.
I'm 5'7 and I find the wider I go (22" or more), the better my ollies and stability but the more wrecked my legs and knees feel by the EOD - In particular my inner thigh & hip muscles and my rear knee. I'll need to few days to recover. Otherwise I stick to riding 20" (innermost inserts) just like that chart says if I plan to ride more than one day in a row on a given weekend.
