Stance and straight-lining
I spent a day switching back and forth between a very wide -12/12 stance and a 'normal' width -9/21 stance. With some headwind, it was necessary to let the board run flat to make an uphill section; top speeds were above 45mph.
What I noticed was that with the wide stance, running the board completely flat was no issue at all, my feet were automatically making all necessary adjustments and I felt in complete control. With the narrower stance, things were scary as hell, I felt like I might catch an edge at any moment and had to resort to slightly weighting front or back side. With the wide stance I seem to have a far better sense of what the board is doing.
Is that just me primarily using the wide stance or have other people had the same experience?
