Question on stance: freeriding/ground tricks

Hey guys

Can you suggest me a good stance for mostly freeriding (coming down the slope) but by doing ground tricks like butters and occasional not too big jumps?

I know i should just try some and use the one im comfortable with, but it would be nice if i could start from somewhere that was "tested" and move on from that.

Thanks

Ride duck. And start out with 15/15 angels that is what I start everybody that i teach at. And if you want to lay in dome good carves you can tilt your highback foward to help u get on your heel edge.

Thanks for the advice. I was suggested 15/-12, will it make a difference or is it just personal preference?

Personal preference, I ride 18/-12 and I like that I have tried slot of different combos and this is what I like. I also ride a very wide stance just provides me with more control. Just try different thins ull figure it out.
