Crash, do you mean how the designers decide where to put the plugs? It is done by a lot of testing with different people to find a good balanced ride, ie not done "by the numbers" necessarily. I don't know the formula stuff myself, but I imagine the longer rocker on the apollo maybe needs some more leverage and hence the wider stance. Mostly the stance itself is something you get used to. The more important thing is how this balances the board. If you feel you don't get a good balance on the board, try moving around the straps a bit. If you're not getting closer, try to pinpoint what feels wrong and ask a specific question here. Also remember that mast position, boom heigh and such things are part of the equation for getting a perfectly balanced feel (and good speed).
