Thanks for the link man. I guess this forum likes the duck stance, for whatever reason. Not real prevalent out here, at least from what I've seen.

I ride with some forward lean. I guess it will vary depending on each individual binding, but for what I have, I usually have it set 2 clicks in the front and 3 clicks in the rear.

If you do any kind of freestyle riding, you'll also need a duck stance.

As others have said, get into a comfortable stance thats what matters most.

Typically most people have the best balance with ducked feet, although many people just don't like that feeling for extended periods of time being strapped in.

Your best bet if you really just dont know is to do a quick run skip and hop and then land on some paper or something and mark the sides of your feet to get approximate angles...you will typically land with your feet in your most comfortable position unconsciously because you've done it so many times before in your life. Or figure out how you would position your feet if you were squatting to pick something heavy up...Its really all about comfort..
