Just take a portable screwdriver on the hill with you and play around with the angles until you find what you like. I rode +15/-9 for years, but just changed to +15/-12 for this season.

I set up my first rocker board with 18/6 in the offseason thinking that a forward orientation made the most sense. I'm not sure if it was the stance or my being unfamiliar with the feel of r/c, but I just could't balance or initiate turns with a positive backfoot. It could have to do with old skating habits I suppose.

old thread, but my angles appear pretty extreme in comparison to the ones listed here. i'm at +24 and -12. took me a while to find something comfortable, but that's what i settled on.

Not in the park, but I do hit lips and drops. Forward stance (18/12) helps a lot when you want to carve and lean toward the nose of the board, while a more open back foot is much more comfortable in powder days when you ride on your back leg most of the times...I tried what felt most comfortable to me sliding on my wood floor after a run.
Not necessarily from jumping, mostly for carving.

What do you suggest trying it on, a cambered or r/c board?

Nice video. That's an "Alpine" or "race" board. ( Snowboard Carving, Racing, Alpine Snowboarding - Boards, Boots, Bindings, Reviews: Bomber Online in Summit County, Colorado: Welcome!)
Much stiffer than a regular snowboard. Notice the binding angles ( +30 +30?) and they use stiff ski- like boots to carve deep like that.

I have a cambered board (Arbor A-Frame) Try +15 / +12 and see how it feels, a narrower front angle makes bending down to initiate a carve more natural, but it is fatiguing in the long run. I wwent up to +21/ +18 on groomers.

All depends on what you like to ride and what conditions you have.

more exactly, they forced to reduce their stances because a wide stance with acute angles prevent knee bending. A narrow stance helps to twist torso more deeply too.
