Hahah! Aldous Huxley said Australia was like going your minds antipodes. But then he was up to his tits on mescalin, what a guy!

Thanks PaoloSmythe, I'll enjoy every centimetre of our 2 metre annual snowfall. The underlying message there is there is no reason to be jealous.

This part of your post is just stupid, mostly because if someone actually listened to you they could seriously injure themselves if the stance doesn't work properly for them.

Solution Instructors prefer you to have this stance for learning, why? because it sends this message, “I’m new at this snowboarding thing and out of control, so get the hell out of my way!”. So, while nobodies looking get the screwdriver out and put those bindings on the widest setting. No need to use the base plate to slide it out further, just use the widest inserts on the board. Just do it.
What if the widest setting is too wide for the rider? Or what if they have a narrower stance intentionally for their style of riding? What if all they want to do is bomb groomers and want to ride a forward stance for it? I hope no one takes this part of your advice seriously, and I certainly hope you don't dispense it to those you ride around.

The rest is amusing.

Couldn't agree more, anything over 22 or 23 inches and I cant STAND it.

Very bad advice.

Yeah that widest stance advice was garbage but I was assuming it was more of a joke than anything. ANyways we call them Gapers where I'm from.. not punters.

I have been very guilty of this especially since I am short. I really could care less what other people think I am though. I only have one pair of pants I do it with though, the rest are good.
