What Stance is this?
 
its the stand that i get whenever i get given a rental board:

(--I---/--) [Right is the front foot]
what stance is this? eg. left-0 right-15
am wondering as im buying a board and dont know what stance ive been using.

i mainly do groomers and this is the only stance ive ever tried should i try some others? any suggestions?

You have been riding Goofy(right foot forward). The only other stance would be Regular(left foot forward). If you are talking about the angle of your bindings(0,-15), there are a TON of different options. Your angles at the moment are ideal for freeriding. If you want to progress into the park soon, then a duck stance might better suit your needs. Duck includes 15,-15 17,-17 etc. This kind of stance helps when riding switch.

If your right foot is forward then you're riding goofy.
When you get you're gear.. you'll prolly wanna mess around with the angles & not worry too much about what the rental place had it like..
There are just so many options with stance settings.. it's great!

Not sure how recent or accurate this is, but here's a link from the "How To" Sticky in the Tips, Tricks, and Instructors forum:

TWS shows the Riders stances when they do rider profiles. They always do at least 8 different riders in their annual buyers guide, the only issue worth buying.

Most Freestyle Pros ride Duck or their own version of it and All other types of Pros use a directional stance.
