Channel Stance-Width info
Got a question for fellow riders with real-life experience with the Burton channel. I've been riding my Custom V going on 3 seasons now and have always had the stance width set on the standard REF points on the board.
I've decided to widen my stance by 1". I did this by moving the front binding 1/2" towards the tip, and the rear binding 1/2" towards the tail. I did this for two reasons:
1. I wanted to lower my center of gravity so that I would feel a bit more stable at high speeds. slightly Wider stance = more stability? Will going 1" wider change make a real difference in feel?
2. Moving each binding "out" for 1/2" keeps me equally centered on the board since I'm moving each binding at the same increment?
Also, since the board i'm using is a flying v, will having the bindings slightly wider from reference make the underfoot camber parts of the board engage with the snow more securely since there is more leverage with a wider stance?
Thanks for your help!
