Default Stance question


I have been riding about 15 years. I have always rode +18/+6 or close to there. I generally ride in the trees but spend some time in the park. In college I got out 40-50 times a year. In the last 5 years not nearly as much.
I have seen a lot of people riding duck footed recently outside of the park. How does this affect ability to carve and speed edge to edge? Is it really viable for all mountain riding? Does it take a while to get used to?

Appreciate any info/opinions.

Appreciate it, I will give it a shot. Should help when I get spun around in the trees.

I used to ride with forward stance, but now I am duck footed at +15/-15 on my all mountain board, free riding board, and powder board. I think that once you're used to it you can carve edge to edge just fine. I feel as if I get better control than when I was forward stance, and it takes some of the pressure off my back leg so I get fatigued more evenly. I made adjustments 3 at a time whenever I felt like it was time.
