from what i leanred it all depends on what kind of rideing you do. I tend to ride more park then all mtn. I have mine set to 18 in the front and -15 in the back. So i ride duck foot which is when you have feet pointing in the opposite directions. I have a friend who all about mtn rideing so he has his angles at 30 in the front and 10 in the back. Both of his feet point more down and i would think it helps his board carve how he prefers to carve. If you have a all mtn board then id recommend setting both bindings up at posotive angles. if your board is freestlye or park then id go duck foot. But this is just my opinion and ppl on here might tell you other wise but this is what ive come to understand on binding angles. i use to ride 15 in the front and 0 in the back but when ever i would ride switch the 0 angle in the front wouldnt let me get from edge to edge as well. look around the net there are a couple of guides that break down angles and what type of flex you get from diffrent setups. honestly though bro it all depends on prefence so next time your out there just take a screwdriver and play around with your bindings and see what you like

+1. It's all about what feels best for you. Just experiment with the angles until you find something that feels right when you're riding. You can start ducked at 15* for each foot and then make small incremental adjustments until you find something that feels right.

the reason for a "duck" stance is so if you are a freestyle rider, and people who ride in the park is that if you were to ride switch it isnt much different and is easier. If you were to have both feet positive in stance, riding switch would be almost impossible. My stance is 15 -15, this allows me to ride both ways with easy. It is personal preference to, some people will have 16 -14 stance. Its just what ever feels comfortable.

I started at a 15 / -15 then moved to a 17 / -17 and its the best stance I have ridden, great for park and all mountain. It is a process of trial and error everyone's preference is different
