I am surprised to see so many people with wider stance widths than me. I've tried moving mine out but 23" is just where I am most comfortable. I suppose it's all personal preference isn't it?
It's definitely all personal preference..Your gonna hopefully ride the most comfy fun stance for you. Your 5 inches taller than me, so my guess is your legs are a little longer than mine. Yet your stance is more narrow than mine. doesn't make sense other than like you said it feels right to you.

Looks like 23.5 seems to be a very popular stance...
I think this might make it a good standard place for people to start experimenting what the best width for them on a new board is. It doesn't seem to have much to do with height and weight or board size, that's for sure

Maybe it does though. Maybe the reason I'm getting away with a shorter relative stance for my height is because I am riding a board that is possibly too short and soft for my height and weight (using a 164 all mtn/freestyle). If I were smaller, I might have to go wider in order to have better control of the tip and tail. Or if I went to a longer, stiffer snowboard I'd have to widen my stance more. I'm sure someone with a much better understanding of this would have the answer.

I didn't really put a ton of thought into selecting my width. I closed my eyes, hopped onto the board and landed in my natural athletic stance and measured it. It happened to be 23 inches. I've gone to 24 but it just isn't comfortable.

I completely agree dude, height and weight and *board size (which a lot of people don't think of) are a big factor in how your board is gonna feel at a given width. I also think there are other factors as well though like- style, hips, agility and the way you've grown up accustomed to riding different things like wake boards, skate, surf etc...As well as a lot of other factors. This makes it impossible to reference a stance based on size.....So I was just being sarcastic cause when you look at the numbers, people are defn rockin what they think feels good no matter what height and weight they are.
