anthology Awesome, thanks for the replies. I set it up 12,-12 and I'll see how it feels next weekend.

I use this stance centered on the board for everything I do at my shoulder width or maybe just a tiny bit wider and centered on the board. Other than that, I'll scoot them back to the tail a little bit for powder (but I usually ride a big board just for the powder and the bindings don't get moved on any of my boards).

alaric Ducked is (usually) the way to go. Start out around 12,-12. After a bit you may be able to go 15,-15, but that's hard on most people's knees.

boarderaholic Stance depends on what you're doing in the park. I personally have my stance just a smidge farther than shoulder width apart, and for me, it is rediculously stable. As in, I can pop ollies, have a stable landing platform, yet be able to care really well. But it is honestly just a matter of personal preference. There are people who live in the park where I work, and they have the stance maxed out on their boards, and they like it. So really, just fiddle around with your bindings to see what YOU like.

Board stance tips

I have been snowboarding for a good 5 years now but I haven't hit much of the park (rails, pipes, boxes, kickers etc.) I am just curious if park boarders use a certain type of stance on their board? If this is just a completely stupid question feel free to laugh, but if standing a different way on your board helps with rails or anything I listed, please share. Thanks.
