15/-15 which is pretty much the most basic stance with the reference width is a good place to start, especially with a true twin board. You can freestyle, cruise groomers and do most freeriding with this stance. Alpine or big mountain riders might go different but I think 15/-15 is a good place to start and adjust from there.

As much as mono is hot doggin it in my world, when I choose to ride my true twin, I, like CheeseForSteez also go for 15/-15. It just feels natural, like the way mashed potato does

Give +90/+90 a shot sometime. I call it the nutcracker. Also, if you can jib switch with this stance, please make an edit.

Ya my previous board was ducky most of the time I think, Maybe not 15/15 but I think like 20/-10 or something. My feet turn in so I'm pretty much uncomfortable with anything.

I actually learned forward stance and then cranked the rear duck after my third day. It really helped my roll my knee out. You're probably right, something like 15/-9 would be pretty mellow as you try to teach a new person to get the weight on the front foot and steer through the nose.

Years ago I started with +21/+9 and have stuck with it. I've tried duck but it just has never felt natural.

I have always struggled with this myself. Last year was my first chance for a whole season (50ish days) after years of sporadic riding opportunities.

Not sure what I did in the past, but last year did +12/-12....

Want to focus more on switch and also considering (strongly) going to +15/-15 this year. Will this help me to "roll my knee out" and positively affect my progression with switch? Thoughts?

A typical learning/starting stance is around 22 inches with +15 -6 angles. The best way to dial in your stance though is to ride with a small tool. As you ride listen to what your body is telling you. For example if your front foot has side pressure in the toe area, rotate the binding in the direction of the pressure 3 degrees and try that. Personally I feel like all those pressure points are your body's way of telling you that your stance isn't quite right for your physiology. I've ridden everything from 16 inches +60 +66(race boards) to 25 inches 0 0 to now settling in at around 23 inches +24 -12 (give or take depending on mood and how sore I am.) I had fun on all those stances when I take into consideration what the stance was used on/for, even used to ride my race boards switch at very high speeds with those crazy +60 +66 angles.
