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.

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.

Forward stance with canted footbeds
I havent been able to find much info about this from the goog. Can anyone share some general rules?
