Treegreen I like to ride 21 -6 if it's a deep day, but really it just all depends on what you want to do. I find opening up that much makes turning/control a lot easier, but I also mostly ride a full camber board around all-mountain.

Unless it was an older full camber Malolo that was probably unnecessary. With rocker in front, a setback insert pack, and a pretty good tapered shape that board should float all on its own.

Most boards designed specifically for powder nowadays don't need any extra setback to get a surfy feel. Just get a board designed to surf pow.

As for angles its just what you're comfortable with.

snoeboarder You can put more weight on your back foot, move the bindings back or use a proper board for the deep. Whatever keeps the nose afloat.
