Default Stance question. Switch from 0/15 to 15/15??

So Ive always ridden 0 in the back, 15 in front. Never been a problem, and id consider myself an advanced rider. Can ride switch fairly comfortably, but never have gone to 15/15.

I believe for park this would be a benefit and just coming off hits and riding out or onto switch might feel more comfortable with 15 on both. I never bothered to learn much about stance advantages. Anyone care to share their opinions on this? Thanks!

Only one way to find out - try it!

Though, going from 15/0 to 15/-15 would be pretty extreme. I'd try something like 15/-6 first and work my way up to 15/-15. You may find something in the middle that works better for you. I ride 12/-6. I tried 12/-12 and 12/-9, but they just didn't work for me. 12/-6 was where it was at for me.

Its funny because I actually did this 2 years back. Since I had started I was riding with the back angle at 0, so I was nervous about changing it just like you are. However, trust me, after a run or two, you'll actually find that it makes your riding better.

So what did you switch to Technine? Somewhere in between 15 and 0 as suggest, or 15?

Funny b/c when i started i went 15/15 then all my friends were like wtf are you doing, so i switched to 0 in the back and stayed 15 in the front and didnt really think anything off it.

IMO, definitely makes switch riding easier but like it's been said you should probably do your stance changes in moderation rather than simply changing it on the dot. I moved up from 15/12 last year and before that 15/6, just gotta find out which one feels comfortable for you really.
