Default Stance

Hi all. I got a Burton X8 last year with EST's. I am heavily into park. I am just wondering if my stance should be maxed out to nose and tail. im +14, - 12

Just do whatever feels best dude, Theirs no set stance for every style of riding. People ride what feels most comfortable to them, so play around with it and find out what works for you :P.

You should go as wide as possible for maximum steeze. Also having your pants droop provides cooling and breathability to your asscrack resulting in higher airs and greater control as you ollie on to box...highly recommended. Oh, and don't forget yo skull bandana fo sho...hide your identity while creeping and ride-by buttering.

jimster knows what he's talking about!! specially the pants droop, make sure they're so low that the bottoms of your pants get all ripped and ruined otherwise you won't get any respect on the hill.

But if you decide to go the skinny jeans route with neon sunglasses, messy hair, lotsa bracelets, and poetry on arms by Sharpie marker...then I will uphold my responsibility to go OG on yo ass and give you a reason to really feel EMO.

Bahahahaha...I've pretty much summed up the entire customer base at Mountain High resort in southern California...the oh so hard "gangstas" and EMOrific whiney bitches frolicking on the snow.

Gawd, I am so full of hate this morning...sorry, I was just on the Burton Message Boards and got a case of the "be an asshole." Quite liberating ironically.

Back to topic, umm yeah...there is no proper stance, what's comfortable is determinant factor.

if your too lazy to change stance width with an ics board, well you should just not board at all. seriously, its 4 screws total, and not even that hard. it only takes seconds after each run to try man.
