That has nothing to do with the stance. It has to do with rider skill level...

Good riders rocking duck stances do NOT face forward going down the hill and certainly do NOT sideslip and scrape off the snow. Trust me, you can lay deep carved trenches with a duck stance too....

SnowDogWax My normal stance is +15 -9 with a 24.5 inch width. On the XV I started with keeping the setback stance that was on the board. I'll give that stance one more day. Seeing that this is only the third day ever for a positive stance set-up. I plan on trying +45 - 35 tomorrow which Carver's Almanac gives as the norm for GS racing.

Ever heard of snowboarder's ankle? I think I got close to that and bruised or strained something.

Anyways my meager point is, I moved my back binding to about a -3 angle and while I don't feel it affected my riding in any way, it actually did wonders to relieve stress on my ankle while on my toe edge.
yea, it's called a sprain. Ice that thing and stay off it for awhile.

Krypto was no problem, like I never skipped a beat. Today was just a little unstable, especially on the heel side. Will be switching to a stiffer boot tomorrow which should help. Looking to develop a stance for GS racing in the next day or so, then practice, practice.
Sounds like fun on the krypto, I will have to try it although with the edges on that thing I know I will be taking chunks out of the groomers. Are you keeping the setback stance? Width?

Like an animal?!?

I should mention that I've slalom water skied a fair bit, which is a total forward stance, but there's really no saving it if the bumps get you off balance on the ski!
