Pretty sure Terje rides the aforementioned +10/+30 stance...

my bindings are very stiff.
I'm really just trying to see where I should start with a forward stance
also, can you jump with a forward stance. I go through terrain parks with my friends, i dont really hit rails but if there is a jump ill hit it

Yeah, if you want to try forward stance I'd even say 10/30 would be a decent starting point.
If you really want to get into carving you'll need a hardboot setup, or a MUCH longer softboot board and stiff bindings and boots.

|nillo||I'm with neni on the interpretation of 'forward stance.' It has been my experience that maintaining your current splay is a good place to start when going from duck to forward. I wouldn't go too crazy with the angles like baldylox at first especially in softies. With those angles I have to assume Baldylox is rocking hardboots.|

Binding angles depend on your setup and foot size. I am at 55, 50.
Where do you live? There are a few places that rent alpine equipment.

I'm still a bit puzzled by the "alpine" and will interpret the question as "I want to try forward angles"
The three very(!) fast and beautifully deep carving guys of my pack ride with +30/+15 or +12, unchanged many moons, so these angles seem to work well.
And yes, it's a bit tricky to ride switch with them, however possible. One of the three even carves switch (or is it fakie?). I can hardly do falling leaf with my +24/+12
