Your joking right?

Im 6' 135lbs, just adjusted my stance from 23" to 24" after watching footage from last year and seeing that my legs looked too straight during jumps and spins. Bindings are 15 and 9

This is a good thread because I was trying to compare my stance to the pros but most of them are shorter than I....23" seems to me the most common among them

6', 165lbs, 22in stance width, 15 -15. I'd like to have a wider stance, but that's all I get.

Yeah, I'm guessing he's got the bindings on the widest holes on the board. Prolly bought it based on a weight table. This is where your height does affect the board you should buy.

Ya I still laugh when people say its ONLY your weight that should dictate your board size....

But damn even if you were going with a super short park board you should be able to get at least 23" I would think. Especially since I have a 155 and I could go wider than 24" and my buddies 151 is at least 23"....
