Thanks for the replies. I pushed my front foot forward to force my hip to point forward. Trying to force proper riding. Thought was if I make my foot more forward will force my hip forward and then my shoulders.
Good video I feel like I am doing some of that since the last trip out I was able to go through moguls with out falling and really was able to whip the board back and forth. Never caught an edge like i have in the past.
My inseam is 32. Measurments are such.. 6'2 waist 32 inseam 32. weight is 203lbs.

I'm 6'2" and mostly ride with a stance in the 25" - 27" range. Yes, with the 27", I have to bend my knees quite a bit. Straight legs don't work.

^Find a comfortable stance off the board. Once you've done that just set the width the same on the board. Don't forget you'll be bending at the knees and squatting.
What's your inseam? Unless you're inseam is that short I expected you to be wider. It's definitely too wide though if you're having pain on the inside of your knees. That happens to me also with a stance too wide.
Why is your binding angle so high up front? Maybe try 18 and -15.
Check out videos on you tube and pay attention to the rider's body position, where they're head is facing during turns.
Someone posted this in the video section. Watch how his body rises and lowers during his turns and how flexed his legs are.

My measurements come out to be 18.25" and I ride at 22.5"-22".
What I found useful was to simulate a squat and find a position that you feel comfortable while someone measures the distance from middle of your two feet. That should be a good starting point. You can make adjustments from that point.

I backed off a bit i was at 24.5 but felt a bit of pressure on the inside of my knees when I would stand up while strapped in. If i measure from my knee to my foot its about 19.5 inches.. Not sure that helps with anything.

For reference I'm 5'10" and I ride 22.5" to 22".

So hit the mountain this weekend. Only could get out for one day. Mountain was crazy crowded and terrain was super lumpy... So made my first set of adjustments. I widened my stance and pushed my front foot out to 25 and back foot at 9. Stance was at 23.5. I also put my highbacks straight with the board.
Well I felt like i was bending more but also felt some stiffness in my back so must have just been hunching over and not squatting enough from what people were telling me. I have some more video its just not very good was snowing really hard and was foggy so the video didn't come out well at all.
I have been watching every snowboarding video online I can find as well as strapping in on the carpet.
I guess its just the indian and not the arrow in this case. I just cant seem to find the sweet spot where my knees want to bend and my spine stays straight. Very discouraging day.

So haven't been out yet to work on any of this but have been doing some carpet boarding.
I did notice that i was not moving my hips at all. I started to square my hips with my shoulder over my front foot (if that makes sense) felt much more stable and natural not fighting my body to move. Now just need to do this slope side. shooting for some ride time this weekend.

it also made me notice when I shift my weight back noticeably.

|thedru13||ok that makes sense. I am going to try and get back up to the mountain this week for a few hours and work on this.|
