Anyone and everyone that is not riding the same stance as Shawn White or Trice is wrong..
.....Just kidding! ride what feels good for you.
Takes some messing around to find what works for you, your body, riding style blah blah.
Both my boards have similar angles but my freeride board has +3 degree on both the front and back binding compared to my freestyle board. my stance is maybe .5-.75 of an inch wider on my freestyle board as well.

9/9 is great.
15/15 caused me to suffer knee damage.
6/6 was hella fun for carving
0/15 is what i started on
ive tried a few other set ups imbetween.

Don't make the switch from 0/0 to 15/-15 all at once.
Try 9/-9 to make the change more gradual, then if you want, you can open up the angle to 15/-15 or more if needed.

|handscreate||+1 for going with a duck stance. I ride +15/-15 now & find it's way easier to ride every type of terrain I've come across so far (at least that I want to ride)|

I started at 15/-15 for a few days, then spent a day each on 18/-15, 18/-18, then settled in on 15/-12 since then. Definitely duck it out and find what works best for you.

|glm||Lol. My friend had a 0/0 stance until we switched board for a run and I could barley snowboard. I asked him if he would want to try something different, and literally he got at least 30% better and many times more confident the next day|

There's a reason all the best freestyle boarders tuck everything in tight in the air. It's the same reason they make thinner tips and tails than before, and the same reason people buy shorter boards for the park.
I think we're saying the same thing, I just don't want a newbie setting up his first board to max out the stance width cause he thinks it'll be him better at jumps.
