Default What kind of angles are y'all riding with?

Ok so I just started tweaking my angles and I already feel a huge difference. I basically been using a 15/-15 duck stance, and changed it to 12/-3 and it feels totally better. Seems like the more straight my foot is on the board, the better I can steer. I haven't tried anything under 12 on my leading foot, but I'm tempted to try next time I ride. What are u guys riding with tho? Think leading with a 9 angle would be too straight?

A lot in here

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sno...ce-angles.html

I rock a 23inch stance with +18/-12 regular.

Tried all kinds of angles and this is the one I'm most comfortable with.

The preferences will vary widely with angles. There is no set rule. It is whatever you're most comfortable with.

A good way to determine just how straight your feet can be is to jump up and land in an aggressive position. Like a defensive position for basketball or football with your knees bent and your feet a little over shoulder length apart. Some people are more naturally "duck" footed than others. I've seen people riding 0/0 because their feet naturally point straight when they stand.

Whatever your body prefers is the right angles.

+9/-9. It was like +18/+9, then +15/0, Now it's +9/-9. So far this has proven the most comfortable for me.
