Default 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

I'd like to add that at the moment im not into fakie, and i've been reading about duck stance, but does it help with all kind of tricks (butters, little jumps) or is it not necessary>?

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.
