Saw one of these kids out here this last weekend while I was doing an instructing clinic. Pointed it out to the others on the chair and we all had a good laugh.

True! I widened my stance last week to 24 inches to see if I could get away with it for more stable landings, turns out I cant It felt more awkward carving and I hurt my front knee after only a few days with this stance. Soon enough when I can ride again my stance will go back to 23.4 inches(I'm 6 ft 1). It was interesting how that half inch or so seemed to make a huge difference for me.

10sullivanb I felt the same way with my old burton floater but I picked up a new never summer revolver this year and set it up for the widest stance possible and it feels way wider than what I'm used to and way better. I would recommend t-bolts, union discs, or any way to widen your stance if you feel like you need to be a little wider.

ETM I have put T nuts in to get extra setback before, its no big deal.

this will give you the extra width without messing with the holes.
I should also add I run union force.

aiidoneus For me that seems pretty wide. I ride 22 3/4" stance width on both my 150cm Evo and 154cm Proto with a similar height and weight as you. The one difference is I ride +18/-18, anything less and I get mild knee pain. 25"+ seems quite excessive to me.
