Question about stance angles
 
The angles of my stance are +18 +6 i usually ride only on groomed trails and occasionally hit up the terrain park. Do you think that's a good stance or should i change it? I don't want to mess up my knees or anything. Thanks!

Did you really mean +18 / -6?

Are both of your feet pointing the same direction or are they pointing different ways.

That's a bit of a subjective question... Whether or not binding angles "work" depends on what your body is telling you.

The better question would be do you ride switch? For years I ran +15/+8 for all mountain. It's a great stance for carving but made fakie on a directional board a bear. If you venture into the park, your going to eventually need to learn switch so maybe try 15/-8 or just go all out and 15/-15. I've recently switched to 15/-15 and so far I'm really enjoying it and kicking myself for not experimenting years ago. It's so easy to get stuck in our ways....

Positive angles can be fun, and are great if you want to rip some carves, I tried it for a few runs but eventually went back to my normal goofy somewhat duck stance of 15/-8ish.

+/+ is a bitch if you get stuck where you have to be in switch.

i used to ride +15/-3 when i was beginning but since then i've developed quite the taste for freestyle and switch. i changed my stance 3 degrees at a time until i became comfortable with it and ducked it out more. i rode +15/-15 for the last few seasons but recently changed up to +12/-12 in hopes that it'll help engage my toe edge more as i found that i tend to rest on my heel edge with too much of a ducked angle. been 5 days of riding so far and its noticeably better. just play around with a few stances and dial in the one that works best for u.
