Stance width

Did a quick search and didn't find a whole bunch on this.

Just curious what other peoples stances are compared to their height.

I'm about 178cm and my K2 WWW has a stance of 24inches, I've never been one to measure my stance (probably should) and will see what my SL is set up on tomorrow, I know its gotta be 1-2inches narrower then my K2

Maybe I sub-consciously put a wider stance on my park board without realising it

That measurement is useless. Binding angle(s), heck, binding manufacturer will all change that number.

Pretty sure the only useful measurement is center to center.

5'8" here. 22" stance width.

I'm 5'9" and I ride 20.5-21" stance. I have narrow hips (30" waist) and short legs (30" inseam) so I guess that kind of makes sense (I've tried going wider... but my ankles and knees ache by the end of the day... even with canted footbeds).
