Hm... I might want to try this combo canting. I just came back from a trip and did a little playing around to find my comfort zone. I've tried a few different combinations and have so far landed at 27/9 with 2.5 canting on both sides. I tried 27/12 with 5.0 canting but it felt like my back leg had hit a wall that prevented me from swinging by back leg around. I'll have to do a little more playing around though. I'd like to eventually go more forward and become more carve oriented.

Thanks everyone for the input.

Forward stances as mentioned forward stances are superior for carving... but make it a bit harder to ride switch or absorb bigger landings as you angles creep up - I've ridden switch and landed a small 20 ft jumps with my angles at 55/50 - I would NOT recommend it unless you are really bored like me . Although looking at the current top level Boardercross riders... they are all forward stances and are hitting big jumps too...



I currently ride 15,-12 or 15,-15 on my park board and ride like 18,6 on my freeride board. As you move your angles forward you are going to using your toe/heel movements less and more hip/knee movements.

pencap75 Alpine guys with their extreme foward stance all have adjustable canting in their fancy bindings, so canting has benefits in foward stance as well.

I used to a be foward stance guy for decades. +30 +15.
Its only in the past decade that I went duck (+15, -9) and never looked back.
Its easier to carve with foward stance, but duck is so much less fatiguing and its easier to switch, freestyle, etc.
