Would riding with the bindings all the way out really make a difference? I am 6'1-6'2 206 and ride at about 8 degrees duck and one hole from all the way out. I just started going w2w and havent done much else yet. Does riding all the way out help you on landings at all?

Jump up high when you're not on a board and when you land, that is the natural position that your feet take. I duck about 20 degrees out. It keeps the pain out of my feet and feels natural. I'm also 1 hole from the end. Not sure if that's too much duck or not.

I ride all the way out with 18 degrees of duck on both feet.

I keep the same stance on my snowboard and wakeboard.

Randy has a great suggestion. Jump off the table onto the floor. Figure out where it feels comfortable to land. If you're 6', all the way out should be right.

theoretically, a wider stance will give you more control, but its all about preference

I stay a hair wider than shoulder width and ducked out 16-18 degrees. I used the jumping technique to get a good starting point and then fine adjusted my stance while riding. I actually ride back leg at 16 and front leg at 18 while riding goofy naturally.
