How wide should I make the stance between my snowboard bindings?

Choosing a Stance Width for Snowboard Bindings

In general, snowboarders should take an athletic stance that is 1-2 inches wider than their shoulders. A common mistake is to make your snowboard stance too narrow. This makes turning and controlling your snowboard more difficult.

For those who like to huck big spins, we suggest making your stance even wider to center your weight over the board and keep your balance. Snowboarders who prefer carving and powder may want to make their stance a bit narrower.
