IslandCrow Something that was suggested to me that seemed to work fairly well was to take the bindings off my board, stand just off the board with it parallel to my body, jump up and land on the board. Don't think too much about it, just land naturally, and your feet should be at a pretty comfortable angle. . .and width. I've played around with a few other angles since then, but I've ended up pretty much right back there.

I can't promise that will work for everyone, but worth a shot.

sunnygsm I'm thinking of going with something along the lines of either 12 or 15 and -6 at the back to start with and see how that goes.

grafta I don't ride any park and am most comfortable at +15/-12 (i think something like that anyway). I don't see many people riding with a forward stance... in fact most people I see with a forward stance are usually looking kinda awkward and have some weird habit goin on.

Def DO NOT straighten up the bindings closer to zero! That'd be strange and awkward imo

C.B. if you plan on learning any freestyle/park riding your going to want to learn with a duck stance

Board Angle question

So i've read some of the threads around here thought I'd post for my situation. I'm a beginner and really looking to start out with all mountain/freeride type riding for a start. I started out with +15/0 on my bindings (regular stance) and just didn't feel comfortable point my board down the hill. I know I have a natural duck stance (both my feet point outwards quite naturally) so I reduced the front angle to something quite small. I was wondering if I should try something like +15/+6 (so not 0 at the back) or if I should try a duck stance +15/-9 or so. I'd like to learn the fundamentals properly, I've sometimes read that people learn with the forward directional stance and then switch, that said I have quite a pronounced duck stance naturally. Any tips?
