These settings are all based on user preference. What one person feels comfortable with may not suit another. Havings said that, start with +15/-15, ride is a bit and adjust as you need until you feel comfortable with the settings.

I agree, Whatever is comfortable for you. I started off with something like +15/+5 but last year went more duck. +15/-15 and found that to be very nice.

X2
I ride duck and I feel that that general stance angle gives me more control when riding switch or in the park. Just test out some different angles on some runs

yeah just set up up at +15/-15 so its symmetrical to start out and tweak the angle from there. do a few floor presses and lean side to side in a few different setups to see what feels right. and things change to so you dont have to make a permanent decision or anything. i rode +15/-15 all last season til the end and my front binding went out to +18. and for this season im prolly gonna go to +18/-18 and see how that is. so just start somewhere comfortable and go from there

I started out +15/-10 but moved to +15/+9 last season for freeriding, I found a forward stance gave me more power to my toeside edge and caused less stress on my front leg.

It's rubbish for the park tho, which I barely do anyway.

You won't know until you try, carry a tool with you and change your binding angles at lunch time. Half a day with each stance and you will be an expert on angles after like 3 days.

Well, I am mostly freeride. I have mine set up at 18/-6. It is all basically whatever you feel comfortable with. Try starting at 18/-6 and/or 15/-15. Whichever one you like best, tweak it from there.
