What is the best stance to ride. I was riding with both feet about a 20 degree angle. Then I tried both bindings as far apart as I could get them, much better. Then at 90 degrees. Not sure how much this made a difference. I felt more comfortable riding backwards. I ride a fish.

i don't know if it's the best, but it's best for me: goofy, all the way out, 16 on lf bindings on both feet, on a marius 140.

This is going to vary depending on what is comfortable for you. Experimentation goes a long way here.

Generally speaking, the width should be about equal to the width of your shoulders and toes should be pointed outward slightly.

This works for most people but there will be exceptions of course.

As wide as it will go with a (big)heavy duck on each foot. It is so much easier on my knees all the way out. Transfers the energy to my thighs and ass instead of my knees.

Bindings as far in the middle as they go, and toes pointed straight out no angle. Oh Yeah right foot is my lead.

I used to ride all the way out, but then realized I wasn't really able to stand as tall as I should. Narrowed the stance by one and it feels much more natural. I am 5'9" riding a 140

25 inches apart, bindings angled at D-2.

Duck is when both your feet are pointed out. So your heels are close to each other toes far apart just like a ducks feet. Then all the way out is putting the bindings as far away from each other as possible.
