Default Flat stance? Changing to Duck

OK, since i was 2 yrs old i started skiing, then i stopped around 10 years old and never went to a mountain again.

Now im 17 and i started to take up snowboarding.

In the past i have had one of those cheap 40$ snowboards from say toys r us that you just slip your feet into.
I've taken that to a park with a hill before and the feeting angles i believe on both feet were O degrees
Ive been renting snowboards for the 2 times that ive went so far this year.
I put my bindings at 0/0 degrees

Tommorrow im going to Catamount and im going to try Duck stance and prob go with 15/-6 or 20/-6

I would like to do 180's 360's and rails better because all i can do with that 0/0 stance is just 50/50 and land jumps, i cannot spin and its wierd riding swich.

Do any of you kno anyone who has both bindings set to 0 degrees?
What suggestions and advice do you guys have?
I still want to freeride but do freestyle at the same time.

15/-15 is about as neutral/ducked as your going to get. I ride it and it works fine. Except for the time I crashed and the front binding somehow ended up at 42 degrees. If you want to be doing 180s and the such, you will want the (around) same +/- angles for your bindings centered in the middle of the board. Seeing as how you have been riding 0/0 though it might be a good idea to go 12/-12. And I have never seen anyone ride 0/0.

Careful though, duck stance can be bad for your knees if you ride a lot.

I just got back from the mountain, Catamount was amazing.
I took your advice and went for the 12/-12

It worked out well, but took like 2-3 runs to get used to.
I can ride swich ok

Did some jumps and more rails, i tryed for a 360 on my last attemp before the end of the day but got a frontside 180 to a 360 revert, if thats what you can call it.

15/-15 is one of the most popular stances out there and very comftorble considering both feet are in the same degree make sure the board is directional before doing this or else its gonna seem way off...

your not supposed to exceed 21 degrees on each foot anything over is where it gets bad. i went a whole season at 30/-30 and dislocated my right knee 3 times and my left 1ce... i found out the hard way unfortunately.
