    so a good stance is to be balanced nice
    0:15
    bent knees spread your legs out
    0:19
    so you're you're width of your stance
    0:22
    should be about about the the width of
    0:25
    your shoulders. So just like that and
    0:28
    then if you keep both your feet pointed
    0:30
    forward like this that's a neutral 0
    0:33
    stance and for a beginner we want to be
    0:37
    going front foot positive 6, back foot negative
    0:40
    6
    0:41
    so it's kind of a duck exaggerated
    0:44
    stance you want to try doing a duck
    0:46
    stance point feet out like that super
    0:49
    duck that's not what we want and
    0:52
    then bring it back into where it's
    0:53
    zero and then front foot six back foot
    0:57
    negative 6. Knees slightly bent since your
    1:00
    left foot forward she's going to turn
    1:02
    her neck and she turned her neck
    1:05
    not her whole whole body and open
    1:08
    up her hips so she's got good alignment
    1:10
    so her knees hips and shoulders are
    1:16
    parallel to the board and if she were to
    1:22
    start going down the mountain and the
    1:24
    slope gets steeper she would bend her
    1:26
    front knee
    1:27
    yeah so that her shoulders knees hips
    1:30
    all stay parallel to the slope & the board.
    1:33
    That's a good stance. Everybody's body
    1:35
    structure is different
    1:38
    most people tend to have their feet bowed
    1:42
    or ducked out a little bit that way i
    1:44
    can bend my knees out and squat down so
    1:47
    there's a maximum range of movement if I
    1:50
    put my knees in can't bend very much
    1:52
    really but my body's not built to
    1:56
    bend like that like to extend like that
    1:58
    so i put my knees out a little bit put
    2:00
    my feet out a little bit you can really
    2:02
    get down low down all the way.
