park riding

is it better to have a wider stance for park riding, or a more close stance? and is it better to have your feet more open, or closed?

As a general rule, you will be more stable with a wider stance. You will also have a little bit harder time *starting* turns / spins / etc, but once they are going they will be easier to control.

Also as a general rule, it is better to be a little but "duck" stance. This helps when riding switch, and it is also more ergonomically correct when beending through the knees...which you do a lot of in the park.

But as the GOLDEN RULE, mess around with stance and see what feels best for you.
