Would that not be a reverse duck stance.

Just play with it I think most people start a bit more of a front side stance. Would suggest starting at 15/0 and play with it from there. Just get your bindings on the board. Do not tighten down all the way yet just get them snug. Strap in and alternate from toe and heel side edges. Can do this on a rug at your house. Would suggest to try the 15/-15 try 15/-6 and 15/0 and see which one feels more comfortable for you.

Once you get a range that makes you feel comfortable tweak from that. So if you feel good at say 15/-6 take it to the mountain that way (with bindings tightened up all the way). Then play a bit more with it and try 17/-6 or 15/-9 might take a few tries to get it right for you.

Its all about comfort. Everytime I wax my board I try to change my stance around to see what works. Recently I tried +21/-18 and hell, its comfy.

Start off with a little bit wider than shoulder width.

One of the most standard set-ups is 15 or 18 on the front foot and 0 on the rear. If you ever rent a board you can almost guarantee it will be set up in this way.

The standard duck 15/-15 is good for trying to get freestyle down when your first starting with that. Equal angles help riding switch easier.

Really though just put on your boots in your house and mess around with a bunch of different angles.

There is no wrong way to set-up your ride as long as its comfortable and makes you feel stable, besides something totally out of whack .

a very standard startup is 15,-9. this is the typical start off point that most people who know what they are doing reccomend. after 15,-9 you can really feel as to where you want to go but it does put your feet in a nice and very comfortable position.
