2008 Cab Custom Stance width

Postby lex123 » Wed Jun 18, 2008 11:36 am

G'day, I just finnished setting up my New 2008 Cabrinha Custom 133. Im 5"5' so i went with the shorter stance option. Im keen on progressing in Wake style very agressive riding.

What is the Advantages/Disadvantages of a short vs wide stance?. And is there any other tweaks or tips owners of Customs can contribute would be sweet.

Cheers

I like a wide stance for popping and sticking landings. Wakestyle/freestyle and powered tricks are way better with a wide stance so rock it as wide as its comfortable.

what he said, plus its easier to stick grabs with some room for your arms between your legs. just make sure you arnt screwing your knees by having it too wide (almost impossible with current board set-ups but at 5'5" it might be possible)

toe out 15+/ -15+

I ride different stance widths on different length boards, this allows me to use the same muscle memory as to how to leverage off the tail consistently

I have the 133. I tried both stance positions and I ended up with the wide on the Custom. Thought the wide would be too wide for my height (1.73) but I prefered the wide in the end. If you are a wakestyler go wide.
