Just as a note regarding stance angles:
I'm naturally very duck footed. In fact, I can stand with my feet at 45 and 45 and that feels natural to me. I ride around 18/15 or so, but I'm still working on getting my stance right where I want it.
So, the moral is that a lot of your stance angle is going to be dependent on how you normally walk/stand. If I try to go 0/0 in my stance I'm going to hurt my ankles or knee (and in fact riding at 10/5 I hurt my back knee very badly last year).
Whatever angle you use you should feel absolutely no strain on your knees or ankles when you go from a full squat to standing straight up. Try this without a board.
