Here's what I can tell you about stances, the amount of angle determines how pressure is distributed through your board. The width detrmines your balance and how fast you can spin. Width is pretty simple, wider gives more balance but creates a higher swing weight, narrower makes it easier to spin due to lower swing weight but lowers balance. Finding a good middle round is key unless you only ride rails, then you can just widen your stance way out. With too much binding angle you are causing a misalignment in your lower body. High angles are great for boardslides because it distributes pressure to the outside of your feet causing fewer hang ups, however heelside spins will be difficult due to the weight being distibuted solely to the heels which makes it hard to pop off the heels. Less angle however aligns your hip, knees, and shoulders for precise edge control and more pop as it distributes your weight over the balls of your feet even when on the heel edge. I currently ride 9, -9 which aligns my hips, knees and feet evenly on both sides of my body making switch riding easy, edging more stable and controlled, and pop easier. With these angles however my rail skills have to me precise as the edges are now more succeptible to catching. For this i usually put a two degree base bevel on my board and focus on landing as flat based as possible. Hope that helps.
This is fantastic. I have always ridden 15 on front on and -12 on back which feels right on my shorter board which is the first length I have ever rode. My new board is a little longer and I am thinking of pulling in the front foot a little but was unsure how that would affect my riding all over the mountain and in the park :-)

Ha! Thanks man. I'm going Monday..I live in the midwest (IL/IA) so it's a lot different here...really icy. Every time I wreck it feels like concrete.

I'll probably try to do a backside 3. Might video tape it.

Video tape everything! It's such a good way to help you learn, by reviewing what your doing on your comp/tv then comparing it to the instructions you've been given. Not to mention when you stomp a nice one you can show all your friends

For sure! It's always a different perspective too. I thought I was getting huge air off this kicker and then watched the video and it looked meh. Was pretty disappointed but gave me motivation to go big.
