Q. What is the proper stance angle?

Dear Lauren,
I'm so confused about snowboard stance angles. I know it's good to change up my stance angles for different conditions and activities, and eventually I will find what works best for me. But I just don't know where to begin learning about stance width, and foot angles and what angles are right for me.
thanks,
LT

Lauren answers:

A. Dear LT,

1. Start by reading this excellent and comprehensive article on snowboard stances by Daan Leijen that I found online.  He covers: Stance width, centering, offset, the snowboard stances the pros use, and even the controversial "to duck or not to duck" and gives the health pros and cons of that stance.

2. Then get a screw driver, and at least get comfortable with changing the degree of slant of each foot on the board by dialing the binding plate. It has numbers right on it. Then change it up often until you find what's working best for you. There's no one magic bullet, and you may still want to change angles for different circumstances, but if you have gotten familiar with how to do it and the effects of the changes, it will be a snap.

Changing the binding plate set-up is a little more complex, and you might ask for some help with changing or learning to change those, from experienced shop workers or friends.
Good luck with it!
Lauren
