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?

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.
