fredericp64 He's got a point, it's just a wake up call for others who are too lazy to change their angles.

I started at +15/0 , changed them to duck 2 weeks later. Night an day.

I know, I know . I'm the latter day Christopher Columbus or Nikola Tesla. However, if you ride only 6 or 7 days a year, the last thing you feel like doing is spending time screwing around with your setup, getting used to it, changing it again, etc. Instead, you just want to enjoy every second you have on the mountain. I'm just saying it is worth screwing around with your setup and getting basic things right and putting a hold on all that fun you would be having even when your time is really limited...

Usually something like +20/+6 or whatever happens to feel comfortable. I'm not really set into one favorite angle.

My duck is usually +15/-15.

Rufus I found that going to a duck stance (+15,-15) and a twin shaped board really helped my progression. I'm pretty ambidextrous and found that the duck stance and twin board made it easy to ride either regular or switch. For powder days I ride a Burton Malolo and with it's setback stance I have my bindings a little less duck, (+15,-9) but it still feels better than 0 degrees on the back foot.
