Default Good Stance?

I ride regular and im changing my stance from what it was because it was jacked up. i want a good stance for freestyle and poppin tricks and terrain park. I was thinking of a 15 -15 degree stance is that good?

I ride 15 and -12 personally.

I found 15 and -15 seemed to make the back of my board want to spin around to my back because my foot was angled to much. But I don't ride a lot of switch either.

Same deal! Though I started with 12/-12 and found that 15/-12 just felt more comfortable and gave me better control overall.

what do you mean by the back of your board wanting to spin around to your back?

I ride 18/-3 on my everyday park board and 18/0 on my powder board. This still allows me to ride switch o.k., without making me stand unaturally or tweaking my knees. It's good enough for nicolas muller; it's good enough for me.

I ride regular, so my left foot goes down hill first. Basically it felt like my right foot was turned to far out, and was forcing my body to spin in a clock wise way, because I was uncomfortably ducked out. I guess my body was trying to turn because my foot was turned to far and it was wanting to relieve the pressure. So the right side of my body was wanting to rotate strangely.

So I un ducked my right foot a click and it gave me a more parallel alignment and stopped my weird natural rotation.

Does that make sense? It's kinda hard to explain something like that in text.

I ride 15, -15 with about a 21.5in stance. I used to ride at 22.5 and I feel like this narrower stance is much better. I can spin 3's on flat ground and my presses are much more deep. So play around with your stance with as well and find what you like.
