should i change my stance ?

I ride a 0/0 goofy and i've ridden that for 4 years. I ride park and all mountain. But i've heard like a 15/-15 is better for park, so just wondering what your advice is. Thanks!

Riding 15/12 feels best for me. Riding 0/0 is pretty ridiculous haha

Is this real life?

I'd love to see someone riding with 0/0 angles.

talk about jerking some knee and ankle ligaments around, you bowlegged or something?

really though, 15/-15 or 15/-10 or somewhere in there is good. My son rides 18/-12 usually..

15/-13 is perfect for me. Riding at 0/0? Are you fucking crazy?

You guys laugh but I went out with my buddy who is riding a 162 Burton Bullet trad. camber deck.. We switched up because I wanted him to try a rocker and holy fuck.. he had a ridiculous setback(max. setback you can go) with his feet as close together as possible and a 0/0 degree stance, and get this.. A HUGE set back to the heel side (so much that his heels would drag on carves, but his toes were bearely even at the edge..

Some people just have absolutely no Idea how what they are doing.. He's been riding like that for years

There are lots of medical issues out there and you will see some pretty strange shit but hey, whatever works and gets them on the snow having fun.
That was actually why he had a 0/0.. But the heel/tail setbacks were just strange haha
