Mine's a full 22". It's really wide for me, but it helps with my jibbing I've found.

life IS good.

Um 5'2" maybe 5'3" and 20.5". Wide enough for jibbing, narrow enough to carve without the knees screaming in pain.

The rule of thumb taught by American Assoc of Snowboard Instructors is simple - the width of your shoulders. You want to stand natural - too wide and your inner thighs burn - too narrow and you can't control the board. You have the most control and power at your shoulder's width.

I ride with the insides of my feet about shoulder width, I tried wider for a day, and I got burned out way too quickly.

(Off topic) I think that's about where I am now. I found as I was learning - having my back foot at 0 was good for knowing where the board was. But no idea if that was better - since I didn't switch to a negative on my back foot until 2 years ago when I really wanted to get better at switch riding.
