Default stance help

I just got back from a day at the mountain and loved it. First time to hit any jumps and obviously wrecked on the way down haha. idk my exact angles but my lead foot is tilted and my back is pretty close to 0. basically what im trying to ask is what is a good freestyle stance? thanks

for most people, it is all preference, a good freestyle stance is close to being duckfooted. You can see binding angles on your mounting plate I ride 15, -15 because I ride and land switch and I like having the forward lean on my lead foot

I've gone through many stance options, but after riding around at 18/-15 for a long time my back knee started to bother me after a full day of riding. I don't know if its cause i'm getting a little older or what, but i've just now set it to 15/-12 and rode on that a few days. Seems to feel very stable and much easier on the knees.

Riding duck has never made my carving harder. If it feels more natural do it. Test out a ton of stance angles to feel what is comfortable for you. Don't forget you can mess with your stance on the mountain too .
