Hey everyone, I was wondering if riding with the boots as far away as possible is better. I've heard that if you can ride with them as far out as they can go, it will be easier to do grabs and land big tricks.

You have to go with what's comfortable. Too far out is bad for your knees so it depends on your body. I do agree that wider stance makes you a bit more stable, but I'm not so sure it helps with grabs.

ideally, for the preservation of your body and knees anyway... knees should bend over and in the direction of your toes.

Ultimately try different stances and find out what feels best. If you're looking for where to start, I can give you this advice. When you're just standing up straight in your living room, a narrower stance will feel more comfortable. When you're actually out riding with your knees bent and needing to balance on something other than a solid floor, then a wider stance will feel more comfortable than whatever stance felt best standing up still in your living room.

If your board is the right size for you, then you will probably end up riding the middle or outer holes...most likely not the inner ones unless the board is too big for you. As for angle, most wakeboarders ride symmetrical duck stance. I see quite a few other riders that like big angles like 18 degrees, but I prefer something like 12 degrees.
