I think if somebody ran a -90/+90 stance it'd be a little hard to ride!
Honestly when you thnk of what you're trying to acheive with duck (i.e. a natural athletic stance) you don't see football players with their feet on 45 deg angles. I would say use as little angle as necessary to get a comfortable stance for your particular body.
I use -9/+9 or -9/+12 depending on the board. Lots of people seem to like 15/15 and a few use more than that, some guys ride with 0/0 and it works for them.

|SuCoSlayer||Like a few have already mentioned, at some point there can be too much duck. I don't think 18/-18 is to that point yet. Maybe 24 would be.|

|john doe||How much duck you run completely depends on how your body is built. What ever stance gives you the comfort and range of motion needed is what you should run. The bad side of a lot of duck is that the toe and heel side of the board could start to behave too differently. Though there are boards made to work better with the duck stance by having different shapes on the heel and toe side. Smokin's Awesemetric and Gnu Park Pickle for example.|

Anything wrong with too much duck?
So I find 18/-18 to be pretty comfy for me. I even have a buddy that ducks his stance out quite a bit more than me.
Are there any drawbacks to having too much duck? Less control?
