It is the start of a new season and a lot of things are shifting in the sport: Rope length, speed, etc. A trend that is taking hold in snowboarding is narrower stances. I'm not talking heel to heel, but really just away from the super-wide stances. Anyone seeing this yet in wakeboarding?
I rode most of last year with a little hip and knee pain at 26.5". I took a wake set and a park set at 24.5" (one in) and the pain instantly went away. I have stuck with it since. I think it wouldn't be a bad trend.
